Star Apprentice Samuel
Nominated by Lisa Bridger from the Aspire Tutor Team
My Star Apprentice is Samuel Kato for the award, as a key worker, he has struggled with completing his CQF L3 during Covid-19. Samuel manages a care home and undertook to upskill through apprenticeship funding last year.
As we know, the Health and Social Care sector are working extremely long hours in a full-on busy environment, and I appreciate that managing a care home and completing his CQF has been challenging.
He has continued to have appointments at different hours of the night, working remotely and he has worked hard to manage a care home whilst completing his qualification. He has had quite a few barriers to overcome during his apprenticeship, and I am pleased that he worked with me and managed to succeed.
