Apprenticeship success for East Sussex County Council  

Beverley Simmonds, from the Joint Reablement Team at East Sussex County Council, has successfully completed end-point assessment (EPA) with CACHE for the Level 2 Adult Care Worker apprenticeship standard.

Training provider East Sussex Qualification & Assessment Centre (ESQAC), together with CACHE, supported Beverley through the process, ensuring she was fully prepared for Gateway and could demonstrate the knowledge, skills and behaviours required for the Adult Care Worker role.

Beverley said: “I enjoyed completing the apprenticeship as I found it very informative in relation to my new job role and it really helped boost my confidence. Knowing that you have a point of contact for any questions or assistance is very reassuring and the EPA was clearly explained beforehand.”

Stella Ilott, Training Consultant/Lead IQA (Health & Social Care Qualifications) at ESQAC, said: “We found ourselves on a learning experience when moving to apprenticeship standards and decided to work with CACHE for EPA as we wanted to work with an organisation we could trust and felt confident with. We had various face to face visits to support us and the resources provided were clear and professional.

“Support from CACHE was prompt and efficient and we were given reassurance throughout that we were on the right track. The online platform is clear and easy to use and the various support materials are extremely helpful for the apprentice, their line manager and everyone involved in the process. We would definitely recommend CACHE to others.”

David Gallagher, Managing Director at NCFE Apprenticeship Services, commented: “We’ve enjoyed working with East Sussex County Council for the delivery and support of EPA. Apprentices really are at the heart of everything we do so it’s fantastic to hear success stories of apprentices achieving their goals. We’d like to offer our congratulations to Beverley and the other apprentices and wish them the best of luck with their future careers in care.”
