After working in a variety of different roles including car repairs and a mental health hospital, Peter has found his career calling at Emeralds Little Gems Daycare.
Peter was looking for a job, and his friend told him about a Handyman role at Emeralds Little Gem’s Daycare so decided to apply for the position. After meeting with the daycare centre, they asked Peter if he’d like to enrol in a childcare qualification, delivered by Northern Care Training, so he could develop his skills further and start working with the children.
Peter decided it was a great idea to support him in his new role. Since starting his new job, Peter has achieved the Level 2 qualification and is now studying our Level 3 Childcare Qualification (Early Years Educator) while working towards his Functional Skills Maths and English. Peter commented, “The qualification is great, I’ve found that I have been able to apply logic to my practical work. It helps my day-to-day role, and I think about what I’m doing more.”
The qualification has allowed Peter to enter a whole new career, commenting, ”I should have done this years ago.”
