Supply Chain (Warehousing/Logistics) – 2021

Before I went to Rexcel I was in a very depressed place. I didn’t really have much motivation to do anything really. I have a couple of certificates in ‘Information Technology’ but nothing major. Everything I tried I didn’t have the motivation to do. it’s not that I didn’t believe that I had the skill, it was more that I would get overwhelmed by life and study and education would take a back seat until I was ready to try something different.

I was referred through to Rexcel to help meet my Centrelink requirements as I hadn’t found a job in a long time. I initially resisted going to Rexcel due to having bad experiences in the education system previously. I have a condition called Dysgraphia which has made the education system very difficult to deal with, as it seems other organisations don’t have enough time to deal with someone who learns differently. I didn’t want to go back to TAFE or any education systems after my previous experiences but after one day of being at Rexcel training I knew that it was different.

For me it was the environment that kept me coming back to engage in the content and look for a job. I had never been in an environment before where the classmates and trainers genuinely cared about how I was doing and how I was going with the course, everyone was very eager to help and give me the support I needed.

Rexcel had all the facilities and equipment necessary. Anything I asked for they provided to the best of their ability. For example, at the time I wanted to get a Forklift Licence, which fortunately they were able to provide. They referred me within a week and took me through so much knowledge and made sure that I knew what I was doing. It gave me even more confidence knowing that it was so thorough and that I could pass because of how well it was set up.

After 9 long years of being so depressed and not wanting to get out of bed I was able to get a job, and not only did I get a job, but I got a house and a partner and all sorts of pets. Life started getting better by having the confidence to go find a job and not focus on the rejection or any negativity because I had so much support to fall back on. I persisted and persisted until I got a Job out of it and I’m very grateful to have had the chance to go to Rexcel

One of the biggest highlights for me was the people and the day-to-day structure. Everyone was there because they wanted to be there which is just a completely different environment to any school program. I also enjoyed the daily structure as it wasn’t just working in a book or sitting at individual desks, we were actually involved with questions, practical learning and assessments. Rexcel Staff allowed us flexibility and treated us like adults.
