Tina Brandon

Level 3 Lead Adult Care Worker


My role at my organisation as a care assistant consists of assisting the nurses with general care towards the patients, shadowing and assisting the nurses and more senior staff members to gain increased knowledge.


I decided I wanted to do the apprenticeship to improve my skills to assist me in becoming a better carer and gain more knowledge about my role as a carer, doing this apprenticeship has helped me understand my purpose as a carer, it has also provided me with updated knowledge, skills and confidence.


When I completed my apprenticeship I was over joyed it felt like I had finally achieved something I could be proud to say I had done I learnt so much more than expected, my tutor was amazing she was always there if I needed help and she explained things that I was unsure about which helped me to gain my qualification with ease. On completion of my apprenticeship, I gained a new role working within community care. Doing the apprenticeship helped my drive to progress in my career and gain the confidence to work in different care settings.


I would like to continue my learning and development an take the leap to continue with further qualifications, preferably in phlebotomy.
