Find out more about Becky’s role within Aspire training team.
I started as a nursery apprentice at a Wareham nursery in 2002. Throughout my apprenticeship, I worked with all age ranges from 3 months – 5 years. After completing my NVQ level 2 and key skills level 1, I was promoted to nursery assistant where I went on to complete my NVQ level 3, key skills level 2 and became supervisor of the preschool.
February 2005 saw a new challenge for me as I moved on from the nursery and worked as a childminder and in catering. During this time, I completed my A1 award whilst also volunteering in a nursery.
In 2008 I joined Aspire Training Team as an NVQ Assessor and more recently in 2012, I became Foundation Learning Manager for the Level 1 Childcare course.
During my role as Foundation Learning Manager, I have taken on the role of marketing the course, recruitment as well as the delivery. I continue to work with 16-18 year olds who have a passion for childcare that needs support before progressing into an apprenticeship. This role brings me so much variety and challenge and is so rewarding to see their personal achievements.
