"Why ABE? Initially the dole sent me but after a couple of weeks I wanted to come. I was unemployed for 10 years. I started ABE in November 2013 and in March 2014 I got my CSCS (construction skills certificate). In August 2014, I started a 2 month job on a building site. 

"If it was not for my tutor Aileen I would not have passed my CSCS card. The staff went out of their way to help me. So I used my CSCS card and I got a job.
