Apprenticeship Success For Simon

A huge well done to Simon Colledge, who is the first employee in the SENAD Group to successfully complete the Apprenticeship Children, Young People and Families Practitioner Level 4.

Simon received his certificate in December after completing the final End Point Assessment. The qualification was delivered by Derby College and Simon has worked very hard (particularly as he also works nights). I’d like to congratulate Simon on his fabulous achievement.

Simon said ‘I feel very proud to be the first SENAD employee to obtain an Institute for Apprenticeships & Technical Education Level 4 qualification which will help me to improve the service I provide to the young people in my care. However, this achievement is very much a collective effort and would not have been possible without the support and advice of members of the management team, my line manager (Rikki) and colleagues at Bladon House School.’
