Case Study 2

This school is a contemporary state-of-the-art independent school that really looks to develop the young children that attend. The school also develops their teachers and teaching assistants too, allowing the best education possible for everyone!

To date, the school has ten apprentices. Most notably, Nadene Stoddart and her mum, who both completed their Diploma’s in Teaching and Learning. Nadene was exceptional with her functional skills and applied that to the classroom, and Marie Butler, Teacher at the school and line manager for Nadene, can’t speak highly enough of her.

“We’ve enjoyed every minute with Nadene. She’s very attentive, hardworking and the children absolutely love her.
