Learner & Employer of the Month Award

The awards aim to celebrate the fantastic work our apprentices do towards their learning and development and our employer partners’ incredible efforts toward their employees’ apprenticeship journeys. The awards are nominated and voted on by our Paragon Skills colleagues. Each month our winners will be featured here on our Hall of Fame and in the next issue of the employer pulse newsletter.

Deborah Smith – March 2022

Company: Wyndthorpe Hall and Gardens Care Home (Parklands Care Services Ltd)

I am extremely happy to receive the “Learner of the Month” award from Paragon Skills. It is nothing less than an absolute honour, and I must admit it took me aback. I have never won anything before!

I am grateful for being recognised and looking forward to completing my Lead Adult Care Worker Level 3 Course.


Abbey Green Therapeutic Children’s Services Ltd – March 2022

Karoline Stanway

We are extremely honoured to receive this reward from Paragon Skills. It has genuinely given our team a boost to see that they have been noticed for how wonderful they are. Richard and his team have been amazing, they have supported us smoothly through the apprenticeship process, and we now have all Carers enrolled on their apprenticeship journey, giving them the necessary skills to support our children to flourish. I feel we should also mention Antony Richards from Nottingham City Council, the encouragement and knowledge we received from Antony has opened up our eyes to the resources we can access through Paragon and Nottingham City Council, to move our company forward and support our Carers on their Career path with us. With their support, we are confident that we can maintain the level of skills and training needed to retain our highly skilled workforce and in turn help our business thrive.

Apprenticeships have been vital in helping my team reach their full potential as well, and it is great to know they will all be working toward the next level of qualification to help them on their way.”
