A experienced carer in the Health & Social Care sector, Laura decided that she wanted to better herself by learning, developing her existing skill set and the knowledge she already possess, she believed that an Level 2 Health & Social Care Apprenticeship would benefit her in many ways, not just within her place of work but towards her personal attributes too.
How has completing your apprenticeship made a difference to you in your current role and looking to future prospects?
“I have learnt the value and importance of organisation and teamwork. The qualification I have gained with Tempest Management Training has been invaluable. It has benefited me in my new role as a House Leader. On completion of my apprenticeship, it has helped me gain more in-depth knowledge within my field to benefit not only myself but the service users.”
Did you face any difficulties during the apprenticeship? How did you overcome this?
“Naturally, we have certain things we may find difficult or shy away from, I faced great difficulty trying to manage my time between work, personal time and doing my work for the apprenticeship and I knew this was something I would need to work on. I have always struggled with maths and it was a great comfort knowing that from revision sessions and support I passed functional skills Maths and English.”
Any advice to somebody thinking of doing an apprenticeship?
“Do it! The knowledge will be specified to what you wish to learn and develop, by choosing your optional units. The qualification has been invaluable, and has abled me to be more reflective at work.”
