Sarah Trimby The Integrated Care Clinics - Leadership & Management Level 5
Completing this qualification has helped me recognise my existing abilities, and has given me the confidence to go for new opportunities both in and out of work. It also helped prepare me for my current role which I started in May this year, and has helped me gain a more rounded knowledge of my organisation as a whole. I am really excited with what the future brings, and I hope to develop even further in my role over the next few months.
Rosie Hewett Fareport Training
Having first joined Fareport in 2007 as part of their E2E programme, I was able to complete my NVQ Level 2 in Health and Social Care through an Apprenticeship. During this time I gained a lot more knowledge, confidence and experience working with adults with learning disabilities and Autism. With the continued support from Fareport I was given the opportunity to undertake my Level 3 Apprenticeship qualification, which I successfully completed in 2010. Four years later and I have now returned to Fareport as a Learning and Development Coordinator. I feel Fareport has given me the opportunity to develop my skills and continue learning in other areas of Health and Social Care. I can now use the skills I have learnt with Fareport to help others who wish to pursue a career in Health and Social Care, through my role as an Assessor.
Liz Owen The Range
Not long after I started working at The Range four an a half years ago, I was given the opportunity to complete the Retail Skills Level 2 Apprenticeship with Fareport. After having completed this accreditation my job role changed and I was able to then attain the Team Leading Level 2 qualification.
This really benefited me and helped me to understand the principles of leading a team, communication and the importance of feedback. With this knowledge it has helped me to secure a supervisory role within the store, which has helped me to gain confidence.
As my role progressed, I started to take on more responsibilities in supporting the department manager, which has now enabled me to start my Retail Skills Level 3 in Management.
This has given me more opportunities to learn about the role of department manager and now I am proud to say that I have just been promoted to run my own department.
Kim Rowe The Range
I left school with very few qualifications and then brought up a child up on my own for 10 years. By completing the apprenticeship it has given me the opportunity to achieve something worthwhile and for myself. It has boosted my confidence in my work and home life and I feel that it has been beneficial to me. I am so pleased to now have my Level 1 in English and Maths and a Level 2 NVQ in Retail.
Finishing this qualification and the support from my assessor has motivated me to now start my Level 2 apprenticeship in Team Leading. This will help further my career and made me realise that you can achieve in your life with the right support and determination.
Georgina Liquid Friday
Georgina has been taken on by the company as an Expenses Administrator, dealing with client registrations and payroll. Mr Baines says that the right training has played a big part in helping her to progress. The balance of theory and practical work and the opportunity to complete work online caters for the needs of the business. He says that Georgina "Rose to the challenge" by getting involved from day one and has taken on more responsibility in her work. She is now hoping to go on to do a Level 3 qualification in either Business Administration or Accounts. Georgina's Apprenticeship is delivered by Fareport Training and she feels that she has really benefited from work-based learning.
