Rachel's Case Study

Rachel, Sensory Needs Team, Rehabilitation Worker, Level 5

Being an apprentice has been amazing. Having the course itself funded by the levy has been more helpful than you could ever imagine and has opened doors for me that I never would have been able to open myself. The support that I have had from my manager and her manager have been second to none, and the support from my co-workers has also been phenomenal. Being on the apprenticeship training programme has allowed me the opportunity to work closely with people in my team and given me a much greater understanding of their methods and ways or working. It has definitely been worth all the work that has been needed this year and I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting new people and making friendships that I know will both last, help my professional career and provide support networks for the future.
