Adam’s story

When we first met Adam he had been out of work for 3 months and previously in roles with no career development. Adam was also suffering from anxiety, particularly social anxiety.

“Even picking up the phone was difficult, but the routine of getting out of the house every day to get to Spear really helped with that.”

He found in the Spear programme a healthy community and an understanding & empowering coaching team.

“Through Spear I learnt the ability to confidently communicate – even putting sentences together before was a challenge! I learnt how to act in a professional manner, both in and out of the workplace. After entering Spear Career, I went to 1:1s every week. I kept going and amazingly, I started a job with Wilbury Stratton as a Business Admin Apprentice.”
