I feel very happy with my appointment today with Eileen. She prepared me for my acting classes, gave me lots of information about free course in Friends Centre and other places. She also discussed with me my career choices. I am very satisfied with this meeting. I got much more helpful information than I was expecting. Thank you very much.

I found Eileen's help very useful.

I was introduced to a wide range of tools I did not know existed. At this point I am just looking for something else. I have been given information on volunteering opportunities, group meet ups and possible apprenticeships.

This was also tailored to me as I work best when I have classes to go to, so we looked at local colleges.

I feel much more informed and prepared about ways to go with my life, not just career. Thank You.
