I'm fortunate that my business is one where we celebrate many positive outcomes and success stories. We have more than 20 years’ experience offering independent courses and qualifications in childcare, management, team leading, customer service and business administration. And it's a pleasure to work with many different clients including childcare workers, teaching assistants, administration staff and managers in the workplace.
We are extremely proud of all our learners and what they achieve with us. And we really appreciate it when they are keen to talk about the ways in which our specialist training company has helped them achieve their goals and aspirations.
Here Craig Turner, one of our recent graduates, talks about his career path and shares his experiences of our company.
"After leaving sixth form I worked part-time in Boston and then went working and travelling in New Zealand. When I returned to the UK I started off looking for a job. I
tried my luck in a nursery, ended up loving it, and decided that was the career I wanted to pursue. I contacted Riverside Training for guidance about starting my career in childcare and was advised to start with Cache Level 2 Children and Young People's Workforce and I also to take my pediatric First Aid qualification. They also helped me find a nursery that would support my training."
"I started out as a nursery bank staff member. This setting offered me the Cache Level 2 Children and Young People's Workforce Apprenticeship and, after I completed the qualification, I decided to move on to my Level 3. I grew more intrigued about the career pathway and Riverside Training discussed options with me. I discovered I could go onto higher education to further my career, so I worked hard to make sure I could secure a place at university."
"Riverside Training was a huge support with advice and training and encouraged me to succeed. They not only helped me to develop as a childcare professional, but also as a person. Everyone I dealt with was friendly and extremely competent. The team will help you hit your targets and get you to where you want to be. The support they offer is unbelievable and they are always there to point you in the right direction. I started a BA in Play-work and Child Development at Leeds Beckett University in September and am hoping to become a play therapist when I complete my degree."
We are delighted Craig found that our services not only met, but exceeded, his expectations and wish him well with his university studies and every success in the future.
Hopefully Craig's story will inspire you to consider training with us.
