National Apprenticeship Week – Vinod’s Story

Apprenticeships are for Managers too!

Apprenticeships are not just for those looking to get into an industry. Vinod is a Manager at Princess Lodge Care Home and has already completed a Level 4 RMA Apprenticeship standard having working in the industry for a number of years.

Vinod is now working towards a HABC Highfield Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management for Adult Care (RQF).

What work experience and / or qualifications did you have before you started your Apprenticeship?

I have worked in the Mental Health sector for a number of years and completed my Level 4 RMA NVQ previously. Also the ILM

What encouraged you to undertake an Apprenticeship?

I wanted to use the course for my own professional development to support my role and lead as an example to my staff team.

In your opinion, what has been the best thing about undertaking an Apprenticeship?

It has identified some of the areas which have changed as I have been researching in more depth and this has supported the continuing improvements to the service. It made me refresh my memory on things that wouldn’t arise day to day.

What new skills have you acquired in undertaking the Apprenticeship?

I have been able to delegate more.

In what ways have Apprenticeships exceeded your expectations? Would you recommend them to others?

I would recommend it as a flexible way to learn and the learning is specific to my service.
