Participant is a Syrian Refugee who self referred to the BBO Towards Work programme after being in the UK with his wife and children for approximately one year.
Participant did not have a CV so in order to gain some background information on his existing skills and work experience the initial couple of meetings were spent obtaining information to develop his first CV. Prior to the conflict in Syria, he had successfully ran his own business selling, repairing and installing satellite dishes, selling and repairing computers and selling mobile phones. His future aspirations were to enter that type of work in this country.
This project is part-funded by the European Social Fund as part of the 2014-2020 European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme in England.
