Testimonial

When I was awarded the role of Regional Quality Manager with Connect 2 Care I was delighted and thoroughly welcomed the opportunity to work with a team dedicated to the high provision of care. This exciting managerial role has made me realise that this is where I want to be and my long-term ambition is to raise standards in the care sector as a whole through quality and bespoke care teaching and assessment.

My employers have been great, they encourage all the staff to undertake proper training,

as well as supporting me in my progress, it means they benefit from having a properly qualified employee and I feel able do a much better job, even though I still have lots to learn!

Lenka Burikova, Care Assistant, Health & Social Care

I’m now working in a more senior position and have been given more responsibility, whichnin turn has given me a great sense of achievement,

I’ve also received additional training in medication and this, together with my other qualifications, enables me to do my job to the best of my ability and to be more confident in my chosen fields.
