Luke McKenna-Rickard

Luke’s journey so far

Luke initially enrolled on an IT course but realised it wasn’t for him. Luke was suffering from anxiety and depression after losing a close family member the previous year and his confidence was low.  Unsure of what to do next, Luke was referred to the Moving On programme.

How has Luke benefited from being involved?

As well as being given a confidence boost, Luke has realised the many opportunities open to him. As part of the programme, Luke undertook a work placement and was tasked with the marketing and selling of a range of products. The feedback he received was exceptional and he has now started on a Traineeship.

What skills has Luke learned?

The programme has given Luke a range of skills in maths, English, employability and work skills.

What did Luke have to say about the Moving On programme?

“I have loved the Moving On programme, it’s been a great journey and I have enjoyed all of it. I have benefited from a confidence boost and I have made new friends.”
