Joelie started her supported work experience placement with Saplings Children’s Centre on 3rd October 2017. Yesterday Mandy, the Centre Manager, presented Joelie with her Platinum certificate for completing an 8 month placement (2 days per week) with the centre.

Joelie has also been offered the opportunity to apply for an apprenticeship within the nursery when she leaves school next year. This is great feedback for Joelie and acknowledgement of her hard work and commitment especially as she is currently in year 10.

“Joelie works extremely hard whilst at the centre and nursery; she uses her initiative and has listened well to instruction. Joelie is an asset to the team and we welcome Joelie her for as long as she wants” – Mandy – Saplings Children’s Centre.

“Absolutely fantastic news. Joelie came into school overjoyed this morning that the offer of apprenticeship still stands and that she has her platinum certificate” – Rebecca – Assistant Head of Turing House, Lord Grey Academy, Milton Keynes.

Joelie is looking forward to continuing her placement and both excited and motivated that she has a goal in sight with a career in childcare. Joelie also helps out occasionally at the Daisychain centre and received a thank you note for all her hard work.
