Courtney, having joined Itec in January 2022 has provided excellent support to all her participants and has helped at least 10 individuals into employment since January 2023. She was awarded Employee of the Month and Advisor of the Month in May 2023 and has received praise from auditors due to her excellent action plan reviews. Courtney has proven to be a hardworking and diligent employee committed to making a positive change in the workplace and participants’ lives.
“I love my role as an employability advisor as there is no greater pleasure than to give reassurance to individuals who need motivation and to see themselves as worthy of achieving anything they aspire to be and goals they want to reach. I enjoy prizing individuals to improve their sense of self and enable them to see themselves as credible. Being an employment advisor, I do not focus on what individuals cannot do, however, focus on what they can do and how I can use empowerment to encourage and inspire.”- Courtney Llewellyn
The ERSA Employability Awards will be held on the 28th of November in Westminster where the winners will be announced.
