Cabinet Member for Skills, Learning and Culture, Cllr Penny Holbrook, said: “This remarkable and inspirational story is a great tribute to Birmingham Adult Education Service and underlines how education and training really can transform lives. Aishah came to Birmingham determined to reach her full potential and I’m proud to say that she found the support she needed.
“We want everyone in this city to fulfil their potential. We want Birmingham to be a city of high employment where people have the skills to access the well-paid jobs being created here.
“To do that, we must provide people with the support they require to move into employment, develop their skills and strengths and access a range of opportunities.
“Aishah’s story shows what can be achieved and her progress is a tribute to Birmingham Adult Education Service.”
