From an Involved Tenant Volunteer to a Non-executive director of Soha Housing, Victoria Dingle's transformation after her interaction with Jewel Training is heart warming.
Victoria successfully applied for the opportunity to take part in a Bespoke Tenant Leadership Training Programme that ran from October 2017 - May 2018.
Here is how Victoria describes her experience with Jewel Training & Development:
"My training hugely benefitted me. I hadn't been able to work since developing rheumatoid arthritis after giving birth to my daughter, who is now nearly 7 years old. My confidence had hit an all time low. I was offered the training and hoped it would give me a new focus but I had no idea how much of a difference it would make. I attened every session and did additional research outside the classroom. It empowered me to become Victoria again rather than a disable person or Mum. I learnt new skills and updated areas that I hadn't used in years. My new found confidence allowed me to apply for a non executive director role and be successful. I've been in the role a year and still use and develop the skills and knowledge I gained from the course. I also speak at public events and write for local and national housing publications. I cannot thank Julie and Jewel Training & Development enough for an excellent course."
