Find out if you have what it takes from our case studies below.

Callum Fennell
Apprentice

After struggling to engage with school, Callum was supported to take on a placement at a local care home where his respect and care for residents made him the perfect candidate for an apprenticeship in social care.

Callum’s confidence has continued to grow as he has progressed through his qualification where he has been supported by a personal mentor who is able to tailor his responsibilities to include more complex care such as emergencies when he becomes ready.

Despite the challenges, Callum’s pride and satisfaction in his work is rooted in the appreciation and gratitude shown by the residents he cares for.

In a handwritten letter from one resident, they described him as a “born carer”.
