Kieran, Discovery Pathway learner

Kieran, a Discovery Pathway learner, took part in National Grid’s supported internship (EmployAbility) and was offered a full-time permanent position as a result. He now works at National Grid as an Analyst and is responsible for streamlining and analysing the technical requirements for new staff.

"EmployAbility has had a miraculous impact on my future. I used to be a boy with little hope of earning my own future, however, the Supported Internship gave me opportunities that I had only thought possible for advanced university students and heavily experienced professionals. The scheme gave me the chance to work at National Grid and gave me two things I was very unfamiliar with; pride in myself and ambition in my work."
