Learning new skills: Sara's story

Sara working at KWT Accounting

Sara Roy, KWT Accounting

Sara gave up her job to become a full-time carer for her mum, and when it was time to go back to work she found she didn’t have the basic digital skills she needed to get a job. She gained help to access a basic IT course and find a placement as a receptionist at KWT Accounting where she now works permanently.
