“When I left school I started college but after six weeks I knew it wasn’t the right route – I wanted to be more hands on in my learning. I decided to search online and I found learndirect. They got me an interview at Lawnswood Childcare and I was offered the Apprenticeship. I love my job and I know I’m on the right path now to owning my own nursery one day or going into social work with children.
“All of the work I do provides evidence for my course so there’s very little work to do in my own time. One of the benefits about Apprenticeships is that you learn from the course, from your own experience and also from your colleagues. I’ve made new friends and learned new skills and ultimately I’ll have a qualification.”
