Tina Goodram, employed by St Bede’s Out of School Club, was the winner of the Childcare Apprentice of the Year award and overall Apprentice of the Year award, both through Alliance Learning.
As described by her LDO, Tina left school without any GCSE’s or qualifications but was determined to start a career and develop and nurture this. She also added that Tina lacked confidence both academically and practically, however throughout her apprenticeship she proved to be a natural when working with the children and her knowledge was second to non. Tina’s manager added that she has been a valuable member of the team during her 3 years in the club. She is loved by all of the children and she is the heart of the team. She goes on to say how proud she is of Tina and that she deserves the recognition she has received.
