Client Success Story: Sophie
Sophie started her supported internship in September 2017, with the aim of working in the sports industry, she was particularly interested in football. Sophie’s Employment Officer, Brendan, provided her with a couple of excellent opportunities in football coaching. One placement was with Shrewsbury Town Football in the Community and the other was with Crossbar Coaching. Sophie chose Crossbar Coaching and is making excellent progress, she is supporting Coaches to deliver coaching activities to children in schools. There is an option of further training at Lilleshall Sports Centre through a traineeship and then an opportunity for Sophie to progress to a paid apprenticeship position in the future. Enable will support Sophie throughout.
Sophie has completed Independent Travel Training through the Specialist Transport Team and Enable and is enjoying her independence. She can now travel independently and her skills are transferrable. She is now in a better position to take up paid work and is able to use public transport to meet friends and go to activities.
