A Speedy Success For Karen at SHSCT Karen Stewart, 48, a former ClanryeIT participant, has recently secured full time employment with South Tyrone Hospital as an Audio Typist.

Karen Stewart

Karen, who has been retraining with ClanryeIT for 1 years, is a qualified administrator with a host of qualifications under her belt.  These include; ECDL (European Computing Driving Licence), Level 3 Audio Typing, Level 2 Medical Word Processing,  Level 3 Business Presentation, to name a few.

Prior to joining ClanryeIT Karen had been unemployed for over 3 years and had previously worked as a process operator.  She suffers from subluxation, a partial dislocation of the ribs, and this coupled with low self-esteem caused her deep bouts of depression.

Karen was referred to ClanryeIT from the Condition Management Programme. She had a huge desire to retrain and a determination to succeed. ClanryeIT built on Karen’s ICT skills and experience by providing not only qualifications but practical experience through a host placement company, M & L Design Management.  Karen’s confidence grew and through the aid of the Employment Officer Karen applied for and secured her new role. Karen found the assistance through the Employment Officer to be invaluable in helping her secure employment and would particularly like to thank the staff of ClanryeIT for their invaluable support throughout the programme to help her realise her goal and reach her full potential.
