Abdalazeez and his family embarked on a life-changing journey from Syria to the UK, settling in Portsmouth. Leaving behind a flourishing nursing career with an NGO (non-governmental organisation) in his home country, Abdalazeez faced the challenges of adapting to a new culture and rebuilding his professional life.
In the initial months, communication hurdles and homesickness weighed heavily on Abdalazeez. However, a turning point came when a friend introduced him to the WEA course in Employment Skills. Encouraged by the prospect of enhancing his employability, Abdalazeez decided to give it a try.
Abdalazeez not only acquired valuable insights into job interview preparation but also found himself surrounded by a diverse group of individuals sharing similar aspirations. His tutor's expertise and supportive approach played a pivotal role in boosting Abdalazeez's confidence.
While the journey to adapt his certificate continues, finding employment has made a profound impact on Abdalazeez's life. Portsmouth, with its welcoming atmosphere and compassionate community, has become a place where Abdalazeez envisions a promising future for himself and his family.
