On a visit to Aspens, a charity that supports adults with learning disabilities, recently, Greg was able to meet three of the 18 apprentices that are supported across the three sites that they own and manage.
Jamie Hands (Right) started five years ago as a support worker and worked his way up to a service manager, a requirement of that role was to have a level 3 diploma in health and social care which he has now completed and he will now be going on to complete an apprenticeship in project management.
Ashley Brawn (Left) is currently studying for an apprenticeship in horticulture.
Emily Barks (Centre) undertook a Business Administration apprenticeship for which she got a distinction, she graduated from a receptionist to an executive assistant and hopes to do more studying to gain further skills.
Greg says: “It was an honour to meet these young people, they are great example of how to get the most from the National Apprenticeship scheme, they have put the hard work in and are now employed in rewarding roles for a fabulous local charity. Well done to Aspens for giving them the opportunity”
