“After spending 2 years at college studying childcare, I always knew this is something that I wanted to do, so I decided to try something new and learn whilst being on the job which is the best decision I made.

After applying for a level 3 advanced apprentice teaching assistant, I was soon contacted by Mary for an interview to discuss it further then within a couple days I attended an interview at the primary school, later that week I received a call which informed me that I got the job. 

After settling into my new job, Tara came in to visit me to discuss how I would submit my work and the units that I would be writing about. She was so reassuring and made sure I understood. She always explained each unit well so I would know what to do. She was very quick at marking the work, and would often send me a few units at a time so I had plenty to get on with. She was also available for any questions I had and supported me the whole way.

Coming towards the end of my apprenticeship, Tara helped me in advance to search for a job so that I would have one in time for my end date. Luckily the school kept me on. I am now a qualified teaching assistant and within the future I aim to become a teacher.

Way2Work and Tara have helped and supported me so much. I thank you all!”
