Ben works towards his Web Developer dream


Ben, Banbury Restart Customer

Ben, Banbury Restart CustomerBen, 29, came to our the Restart Scheme office in Banbury, looking for help to realise his dream of becoming a web developer. As an IT graduate, he had some previous experience in retail.

His adviser, Laura, booked Ben on relevant workshops to help increase Ben’s confidence, as well as updating his CV and coaching him in interview skills.

With his background in retail, Ben took up a part time job at Card Factory which has helped him financially and allowed him to save some money. His job was made permanent and his hours increased, however, he wanted more help with his aspiration of working in IT.

Ben is receiving support around upskilling his IT skills, including building an IT portfolio. Ben is much more confident in himself and feels he can now focus on what he wants to do.

Ben said: “Laura has been an amazing coach for me alongside the rest of the Fedcap team. The support I have been given has been invaluable and I have been taught lessons I will carry with me after my time with the Restart Scheme.”
