MPREC has helped two job seekers successfully gain their Learner's Licence, an achievement that will greatly increase their employment prospects.
Leon Bennett and Chris Hardy, both who are part of the Barwon Four Clean Up Activity Group, have been working towards this goal for some time, practising until they felt confident enough to sit the test.
Acting Team Leader Alana Hardy says Leon has had challenges with his literacy, which has held him back in the past, so this milestone represents a fantastic achievement for him.
“I have been working with Leon for a number of years, trying to build up his self-confidence. This is a very proud moment.”
Chris missed doing the Learner Driver Course with Birrang last year because he was tied up with the Green Army Project, so he continued practising until he felt confident.
The boys walked out of the test with huge smiles on their faces, clearly chuffed with their achievements.
This initiative is funded/supported by the Australian Government.
