How the Skills for Education and Employment program helped Marc change his life

Marc came to MTC Australia suffering severe anxiety in spite of his encyclopaedia-type brain. Marc was unsure about what he wanted to do with his life, and couldn’t find any career paths that suited him, so he was enrolled within the SEE (Skills for Education and Employment) program to help motivate him into the workforce.

Within his first few weeks Marc was extremely nervous around other students and couldn’t cope with group work and activities. Marc’s teacher assisted and mentored him with support and encouragement, and Marc quickly started to gain confidence and participate within class.

Within class, Marc’s teacher discovered he had an interest in computers, and directed him to a website that teachers computer programming, coding, design, etc. Marc was inspired by this and decided it was something he wished to pursue. Marc’s class attendance then began to increase, and he started helping other students which improved his social skills dramatically.

Marc and his teacher found a TAFE course that motivated him, and he was soon enrolled within Graphic Design at Macquarie Field TAFE. Marc has since visited his MTC teacher to thank her for everything, and to tell her he is excited about the future.
