"Things can change". That's the message from one of the most inspirational people I've ever met.

I was so pleased to be invited to present certificates to people who had returned to education at Weymouth College but had no idea of some of the amazing stories I would be hearing. Russell stood out a mile as somebody who has overcome tremendous obstacles including homelessness and addiction to get himself to a point where he has qualifications, is a proud passport holder and has a job. He has turned his life around in every way. Russell explained more.

Russell was one of a number of people picking up certificates and it was great to be there to help and to share in the celebration.

I also spoke with Heather Thompson from Weymouth College who told me a little more about the people she helps and gave me some top tips for getting a job.

I saw for myself yesterday that the team at Weymouth College will do everything they can to help you succeed. I also saw that the result literally changes lives. Things can change!
