In March 2011 Lenny, who has low vision, attended a Career and Future planning Immersion course at Homai Campus. He produced a CV and this started him on his journey working towards his goals.
Last year we teamed up with the transition support person from the Ministry of Education Special Education and set up an action plan to work towards Lenny transitioning successfully to Polytech. We ensured all the support systems he needs will be in place.
This year Lenny has a job through the Gateway programme, working one day a week for an IT company. This is his passion and where he wants his future to be.
A highlight is that Lenny has put in his enrolment form to Otago Polytechnic for next year where he will be studying Information Technology.
