Mum with ambition progresses onto her next steps in her career journey
The first day of school is an emotional time for any mother, but for Heather, it’s also an opportunity to fulfil her career aspirations in the Health and Social Care sector. Opportunities for Health and Social Care careers have grown and helped individuals achieve new paths. This is why we are excited to share Heather’s experience.
Heather discovered the options available to her with Innovative Alliance. She decided to take full advantage of their funded courses. In August 2020, she successfully completed her Level 1 Health and Social Care and is now progressing onto the Level 2 qualification. This will allow Heather to increase her chances of employment once her children are in full time education.
Speaking about her experience on the course, she said:
“Once the course had begun, it was very engaging. The tutor was very motivating. I’d recommend Innovative Alliance because I gained a lot from the course and it was very well run.”
Taking it a step further
On completion of her course, Mark, her tutor, supported Heather and presented her with options for her next steps. Heather could choose to progress on to further education and training. Alternatively, she could choose whether she wanted support looking for entry level employment. As the Level 2 Health and Social Care qualification was due to start, Heather couldn’t pass up the opportunity enrol. She continued to work towards a higher qualification to help her career journey and boost her knowledge. In fact, Heather was one of 3 learners who also progressed from the level 1 to level 2 course for further development.
CEO at Innovative Alliance, Ian Green, was delighted that so many learners from the Level 1 Health and Social Care course had progressed on to the Level 2. He said,
“Our aim is to help individuals into employment, and if that means that we can develop their knowledge and skills and provide pre-employability support and training alongside a recognised qualification, then in my opinion we’re doing a great job.
“Mark is a valuable member of the team who goes that extra mile to support learners, not only with their qualification, but on a personal level, to ensure that they are confident with their next steps. Well done to him for another successful course delivery, and congratulations to Heather! I’m sure we’ll hear more great things from her on completion of her Level 2.”
