The learners at SE Northumberland completed their classroom section of the Returneeship course and together created a rap that they performed at their presentation along with speaking about their journey with us.



Now, this is a story all about how
My life got flipped-turned upside down
And I’d like to take a minute
Just sit right there
I’ll tell you how I became a learner with bags of flair.

In South East Northumberland born and raised
At the Job Centre is where I spent most of my days
Applying for jobs and courses is cool
And learning new skills is like being back at school

When a couple of guys who were up to some good
Started making news in the neighbourhood
When I first walked in I was nervous and scared
But I left that day feeling ready and prepared

I headed to the Buffalo and when it came near
I knew Release Potential would give me nothing to fear
If anything I could say R P was rare
But I thought ‘Nah – forget it’ – and headed into their lair

I’ve learnt new skills, about seven or eight
The tutors all told me it was my fate
I got my certificates
I was finally there
To apply for all the jobs waiting for me out there

From the SE Northumberland Returneeships.
