As its International Womens Day, we thought it would be appropriate to pay tribute to our recent learner Sharon for her dedication to our training course.
Sharon joined our care workshop back in February with the goal of gaining industry-specific qualifications to help with her job search.
Our care training package provides learners with the opportunity to gain important skills and nationally-recognised qualifications in the sector. It is the ideal starting point for those wanting to pursue a career in the sector as it includes a free DBS certificate, which is a requirement to work in care.
Sharon juggled a lot of personal commitments during her time with us but was determined to not let things affect her learning.
Her tutor Lynne Martin praised Sharon’s determination to the course. She said “Throughout the week Sharon demonstrated a very dedicated, professional approach to her learning. She added. “I feel that Sharon deserves acknowledgement and recognition for her efforts during this workshop due to her personal responsibilities”.
In just one week, she achieved a Level 1 qualification in Adult Social Care and a Level 1 qualification in Equality & Diversity. She is now knowledgable in various aspects of the industry, such as supporting individuals within their own homes through personal care, assisting with moving and handling, medication administration, food preparation, shopping and social calls.
The qualifications and skills Sharon has learnt so far will help boost her CV and get her one step closer to finding work.
Sharon says “ I enjoyed my time at the centre, Lynne is really nice and helped me whenever I needed it. I’m hoping that this course will get me my dream job in the caring profession.”
