Aidan Brown, a student on the Community Sports Trust’s latest cohort of the Traineeship programme, has successfully gained employment following his 12-week work placement.
This is credit to Aidan as he fully embraced the opportunities the traineeship had to offer.
As part of the volunteering work placement element, the CST secured a 12-week customer service role via Ian Irving, a director of the VR Gateway.
Aidan excelled in this role, taking part in the VR Roadshows which took place at various venues across the city and wider communities.
Aidan’s polite, calming nature shone through, and the organisation received some great feedback from service users on Aidan’s professionalism and impeccable manners.
Aidan also volunteered with our community coaches here at CUFC CST and, again, his work ethic was outstanding.
On completing the traineeship at the end of April, Aidan secured sessional paid employment with the VR Gateway team.
Aidan is also hoping to gain an apprenticeship as a teaching assistant within a primary school in September.
CST Traineeship Coordinator Teresa Mulholland said: “We are immensely proud of Aidan.
“His work ethic and commitment to the programme have been outstanding. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Ian and the guys at VR Gateway for supporting the programme.”
Ian Irving, director of VR Gateway, said: “Aidan’s work ethic, overall positive attitude, and professionalism have been a credit to the team.
“He has conducted himself well and performed admirably in some challenging and new situations.”
VR Gateway will be attending the Queen’s Jubilee event at Harraby Campus on Thursday 2 June (12pm to 4pm).
