Why did you choose to work in social care?
I always knew that I wanted to work in Social care because I enjoy talking to elderly people and want to make them feel safe and well looked after. The most useful thing to me was my work experience which was at a care centre for elderly and vulnerable adults. I also worked with disabled adults in their home environment.
How did you find out about the apprenticeship?
I learnt about the apprenticeship at a careers day at school. Filling in lots of application forms was a bit confusing, but Evie was really helpful.
