Caring ambitions pay off for Emily

A Health and Social Care apprentice from Dorset’s dedication to the older people she works with has seen her receive a special award from Intraining.

Since Emily Stein, 26, from Wimborne, Dorset, started her Level 2 apprenticeship working for Pramacare in February 2016, she has taken on a leading role in two Memory Lane groups run by the care provider in Poole and recently helped start up a third group in Wimborne. The aim of these sessions is to provide stimulating, fun activities focusing on past and present memories which keep customer’s minds and bodies healthy.

“I’m very excited about winning the award and I am now looking forward to going on to do my Apprenticeship at Level 3 in health and social care,” said Emily.

Emily also jointly runs a group for unpaid and recently bereaved carer's from the local community, and will be taking on supervision of a Day Centre once a month. She also mentors new staff coming into the business as a shining example of best practice.

“Emily’s Apprenticeship work is always of a high standard and was produced ahead of time in many cases,” said Intraining Assessor Lynn Wheeler.

“She thoroughly deserves this award for the hard work and dedication she shows to her apprenticeship and developing her career.”
