Childcare is not always considered as a first choice career for men, but Clive Fazakarley has proved that not only is it a good career move but can lead to an exciting future. Clive tells his story:
“I approached CWT two years ago to discuss the qualifications I would need to gain a qualification to become a youth offending worker. One of the options I was offered was an Apprenticeship in Childcare. CWT gave me support to secure employment with Wonder Years Nursery. I attended the nursery 4 days per week and attended CWT training centre for the other day. I was also assigned an assessor who visited me in the workplace to observe me carrying out various activities. My assessor and employer are very supportive and within a year I had completed my level 2 in Children’s Care, Learning and Development. My assessor encouraged me to progress onto level 3. I attended weekly sessions in the evening to complete the technical certificate. I was observed again by my assessor but this time it was completing more supervisory roles within the workplace. I had support and advice all through the course and was able to work at a pace suited to me; this enabled me to complete the level 3 in 8 months! I am now a fully qualified Nursery Nurse and am looking to progress further and become a youth offending worker in the future. CWT and in particular my assessor have given 1st class support and advice, I would recommend CWT and the Apprenticeship route to anybody who is looking to gain qualifications whilst working”.
