Apprentice of the month – February 2023

Congratulations to Jamie, our Apprentice of the Month for February!

Jamie started her Level 3 Teaching Assistant Apprenticeship journey with us in January 2022, working at St Peters School, Williton. Jamie has worked exceptionally hard throughout her course with great determination. She is a busy mum and her day-to-day life as a Teaching Assistant is demanding to say the least, but she never gives up!

Jamie has already moved on to a new job at Holway Park Community Primary School in Taunton, following her passion for working in SEND. She said, “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with Somerset Skills & Learning. The support my tutor and the wider team provided was unbelievable and kept me going. I would highly recommend SS&L to anyone looking to better themselves.”

Sarah, Jamie’s tutor, said, “Jamie has pushed on through challenges in order to reach her goal of becoming a specialist SEN Teaching Assistant. Having seen her in practice, she is a natural and we are glad to hear her plans to move on to her dream job now that she has completed her Apprenticeship programme gaining a Distinction just after the Easter Holidays.”

Grace’s employer says, “Jamie is intuitive and someone who learns quickly and uses her initiative.”

Well done to Jamie and we wish her the best of luck and success with her future career!
