“My experience at CLI was a huge help in securing my current full time job. During my time, I developed many different skills from; learning to communicate with adults, and vulnerable adults, which helped me to relate to many different scenarios given to me during the interview for my current role. I also gained the confidence to speak in front of others at CLI and I was really made to feel a part of a strong working team, whereby everybody supported each other”

“During my interview for what is now my job at a bank, they showed great interest in my role as a mentor with CLI. My experiences at CLI helped with competency based questions, as I was able to use different mentoring scenarios to show my ability to perform well in the role. The bank was also very impressed I gave up my free time during my final year of university to volunteer. As a result, I believe this most definitely played a part in me being successful with my application and getting the job.”
