Celebrating end-point assessment success

“The support I received throughout my apprenticeship was incredible”

Paul Vickerman from charity St Mungos, has successfully completed end-point assessment with CACHE for the Lead Adult Care Worker apprenticeship standard.

St Mungos is a charity and housing association working directly with people who are sleeping rough, in hostels and at risk of homelessness.

Training provider OPPS Developments, together with end-point assessment organisation CACHE, supported Paul and his employer through the process, ensuring he could demonstrate the knowledge, skills and behaviours for the apprenticeship.

Paul said “Throughout my apprenticeship I worked on the Brighton Housing First project, working with clients with multiple complex needs, substance misuse and mental health issues. The apprenticeship allowed me to support these clients to live independently in the community.

The support I received throughout my apprenticeship was incredible, it was so rewarding to feel part of a team.”

Barbara Seymour, Director at OPPS said: “We decided to work with CACHE as they were friendly, approachable and accessible. Throughout the apprenticeship we received so much support and reassurance which was invaluable to us as end-point assessment is so new.

“We’d definitely recommend CACHE for end-point assessment, their flexible approach, encouragement and guidance materials were instrumental in Paul’s achievement, along with the support from Paul’s employer St Mungos. We’re delighted with Paul’s achievement and wish him every success for the future.”
