“It gave me the self-confidence to follow my dreams.  If it were not for the centre I would be where I am today.  After completing my Level 3 and Level 4 in Athlone CTC,  I was accepted to Moate Business College where I successfully completed the Level 5 Social Studies course.  I am now working full time for SONAS Nursing Home as a HealthCare Assistant in Athlone.  I am very happy in my life and I give special thanks to the centre for that”.
