Senior Healthcare Support Worker Apprentice, You and Me Supported Living

Abi works as a senior support worker for You and Me Supported Living, who provide care for individuals with learning disabilities such as autism and Down Syndrome, supporting them in living an independent life. Abi has recently completed her Level 3 Senior Healthcare Support Worker apprenticeship with Paragon Skills.

Abi was originally offered to take part in the apprenticeship by her employer, in order to improve her knowledge of the job role to progress within her career. Abi chose to undertake this apprenticeship to gain more knowledge and experience in her job role and prepare her for promotion within the company to Senior Support Worker. Abi now aims to begin her Level 4 in the near future, with the hopes of continuing her learning and progression within the care sector and the company.

I’ve definitely really enjoyed doing the apprenticeship. It’s helped loads with my confidence since starting, and I now have the confidence to go on to do my Level 4.

Abi’s thoughts on her apprenticeship

Abi explained that her confidence has improved greatly since beginning her apprenticeship; she is now comfortable working on her own with clients, joining team meetings and speaking with parents, doctors and social workers with ease. She felt well-supported by her personal tutor throughout her apprenticeship, meeting with her tutor for regular calls to review progress and ask questions. Abi knew that if she had any problems or questions outside of these calls, she was able to contact her tutor who could offer support and guidance. Abi expressed that for anyone wanting to progress in the care sector or begin a career in care, she would highly recommend an apprenticeship.
