This has been a great week for all our Future Finders – we have all been out on placement! We have all been working hard not only in work but also on our independence skills.

Joshua, Fahad and Liam are really enjoying their placement at Oldham Library and have been working hard..

Both Joshua and Fahad are continuing to impress and improve their skills and are being given more and more to do. Fahad is working with the public helping them with their PC enquiries and problems! Well done Fahad!

As part of their training the students are working on their ‘touch typing’ skills and Joshua is already on Level 66!! Keep up the good work Joshua!

Jason has had another great week this week – he is doing a wonderful job at the Old Toll House Cafe! The cafe owner even said, “We have been so busy, we wouldn’t have coped today without him!”

Jason’s hard work has been rewarded with the ‘Worker of the Week’ award, congratulations Jason!

Reece is still at dsgnuk working on coding and he is loving every minute of it! I called in on him this week to check on how he was getting on. He explained to me a bit about what he was doing, looking for faults in websites. He has been working on typing, websites and some tasks related to deadlines that are needed to be completed for customers’ orders.

The feedback from dsgnuk is that “Reece is doing a really good job and is completing the work that we ask him to! He has a good set of skills already and he continues to work on these.” Well done Reece – keep up the good work!

Thursday is our classroom day and this week we have looked at managing stress, linking this with World Mental Health Day. We looked at triggers and stress management techniques, it was great to see the group talking openly about things that ‘stress them out’ and how we can help them if needed. It is OK to talk!!

  

That’s it from us for this week – another busy one at Medtia, just how we like it!!

Have a fab, restful weekend everyone!
