Meet our staff: Learning Facilitator, Steve

Here at the Trafford College Group we pride ourselves on our hard-working staff who support our students throughout their college journey.

We spoke to Learning Facilitator Steve about the invaluable role he plays here at Stockport College, and his journey towards becoming a member of the team.

Hi, my name is Steve!

I started working at Stockport College as an Learning Facilitator in September, after attending the relevant course offered to me by my work coach at Universal Credit.

Previously I was an electrician for over 25 years, a high-pressure environment that took its toll both physically and mentally.

I was extremely nervous when I first entered the classroom but very soon found my feet.

For the first time in my life, I have a job that I love and a place I feel I belong. I work with some wonderful people, and I feel I’m an integral part of a rapidly strengthening team.

The main positive I get from my role is watching the realisation and joy on the learner’s face when they understand my explanation.
