Michael Boorman attended our Job Readiness Programme in October 2014. He had resigned from a job at the Spar because he found it too challenging to get back to Fisantekraal every evening. After several months of battling to find employment, Michael decided to attend FCDâ€™s Job Readiness Programme. Michael embraced the training, demonstrating a super customer service orientation along with the values and attitudes needed to be successful in the workplace. As a result, he was given an opportunity to participate in the Work Experience training programme arranged with Sonstraal Spar â€“ which in turn led to him being re-employed, this time as a cashier at the in the Sparâ€™s Tops Bottle Store.
Michael says that his time at FCD has givenÂ him a better understanding of the role and value an employee as well as his rights and responsibilities towards his employer.
Even though his transport from work remains a challenge, he now gladly walks the distance required to find a taxi, for the joy of having a full-time job.
