Health and social care apprentice David Hedley from Mansfield, is enjoying learning his profession ‘on-the-job’, which helps develop both practical skills and experience.

Apprentice David, 28, joined Innova House as a support worker two years ago and has progressed to a team-leader role. He said: “I was given the opportunity to become a team-leader just three months into the job. It was great to have my skills recognised and be able to study an apprenticeship.

“The company motivates me to do well and no two days are the same. Seeing service-users thrive and progress in their lives really is the best feeling.”

Care home manager Emma Goss, insists seeing both her staff and clients happy gives her huge job satisfaction.

Emma said: “Training staff in the health and social care setting is vital. We have to ensure everyone is as up-to-date as possible, especially as the regulations and criteria change quite regularly.

“The government’s drive to create more apprenticeships can only benefit the health and social care sector. Companies like ours can’t help but thrive, with apprentices, working with such passion and enjoyment.”
