The grant took away a lot pressure to financial fund the course. Allowing me to focus on the course and give my 100% attention without distraction. To pass the course is an achievement for me and I am forever grateful for the help received from Thomas Wall. I plan to undertake a Level 3 in Computerised Accounts Sage to beef up my qualifications and intensify my search for work to continue my journey in becoming an accountant.

Teaching Assistant Level 3

I was struggling on benefits as a single parent. I decided to go to college and study for my teaching assistant qualification. I needed a job that allowed me to work around my children and not have to worry about childcare in the school holidays, but also paid well. The grant helped me cover costs for books, stationary and devices to help me study. I wouldn’t have been able to complete my course without it. I gained employment after finishing my course and now I work hours to suit my family needs and it is good pay! For the first time in years I’m up to date with my bills, I can put money aside and I feel so proud of myself it really has helped my mental health. I am forever thankful for this grant it really has changed my life. Thank you.

Access to HE Law

I’m grateful for the grant provided by Thomas Wall Trust. I found your charity during a very low point in my life and had no where to turn. I studied the Access to HE Level 3 Law diploma and completed it with 45 distinctions. The qualification opened up a wealth of opportunities and increased my confidence. I went on to find employment/ volunteer experience and university. I’m now at university studying law and couldn’t have done it without the Thomas Wall Trust. Once I’ve graduated I intend on pursuing a masters in Human Rights Law and qualifying as a solicitor.

NVQ3 Information Advice Guidance

During Covid I managed to secure paid employment as a Employment Specialist with the NHS. I wouldn’t of been able to apply for this position if I didn’t have the NVQ3 qualification.  Thank you SO MUCH for helping me achieve my dream 💜 I plan to settle in my new role and be the best Employment Specialist I can be.

Barbering Diploma Level 3

Receiving the grant assisted me by way of allowing me to purchase suitable tools to provide a more efficient service and learn additional skills I would never have been able to do with my college provided kit. Also, securing travel expenses assured I never missed a day and kept my attendance at 100% allowing me to benefit from every given opportunity both practical and theory. Having the extra finances for travel assisted me in securing a work placement that was far more suitable in relation to my overall interest in the industry and which I wouldn’t have been able to do locally.
