A recent self-referral to the North Wales IAS has resulted with an individual, Y, in a successful work placement. Following an initial triage with the NW IAS, a support worker called the individual in to the IAS advice hub and began working on Y’s outcomes. The support worker referred Y to a gaming course led by North Wales Training (NWT) – a qualification in information technology that enables the individual to set up web pages and create games – as the individual wanted employment within the gaming industry. The IAS support worker took Y to the first few courses and encouraged Y to travel by bus independently to the NWT. Y couldn’t see the relevance of the course with regards to employment, and so following discussions with NWT, a work experience placement was arranged for Y with Poundstretcher in Mold.
