How does the course relate to what you do on a daily basis?
The course provides a specific management qualification that is respected and recognised and linked to CYP and families. It also demonstrates that I am committed to learning and continuous professional development and provides valuable first-hand experience of how to support staff if they started an apprenticeship or similar work-based qualification.
Would you recommend completing an apprenticeship to others?
Yes, absolutely. Suffolk County Council have been very supportive.
