“Hi my name is Jackie and I have been at Solomon Group doing the SPEC Course learning about Employment Coaching and Employment Pathways.
I also found the Tutors very welcoming and the students in the class which made it easy for me to come back and want to learn. My Tutors are Stella, Gail, and Nawaii. I found them very helpful, fun, and kind. We start our morning off with a Karakia and a Story of the Day, which is about someone who has been through struggles and have found ways to achieve their goals which is also where we get our Whakatauki for the day. . . I have really enjoyed my time being here and learning new things every day. In my first week I learnt how to do a cover letter which I had no idea about and also learnt how to put together a C.V.
For the first four weeks of the course we do Money Minded which helps you learn about Budgeting, How to identify a Scam, Good debts and Bad debts, Spider Accounts and many more. We also do word of the day which helps us learn the meaning of the words and also how to spell them if you’re spelling is not up to date.
So with everything I have done and learnt here I must say I have learnt a lot and enjoyed my time here."
