Anthony first approached learndirect in 2011, following a family breakdown.
He initially enrolled on an IT course, but although he enjoyed attending the Bay Learning Centre, the family breakdown took its toll and he began drinking heavily and isolated himself from everyone.
Anthony sought rehabilitation support and now, back into the swing of things, he enrolled on an ECDL course.
He was so enthusiastic about learning he asked for IT courses to be delivered at his rehabilitation centre, and as a result, has inspired more than 20 residents to return to learning.
He is truly inspirational, has really turned his life around and continues to explore learning opportunities.
In 2014 Anthony won a national learndirect Inspiration Award.
Anthony said, “If I saw someone suffering through lack of education, I wanted to help them. Introducing them to learndirect is a great way for them to start.”
