“I was attracted by the idea of working in nursing and midwifery and then I saw the chance to join Building Blocks as an early years apprentice.
“It was a trip into the unknown for me and I didn’t know what to expect at all but it’s the best thing I could have done.
“I started my level 2 apprenticeship last year and in the next few weeks I will be entering my End Point Assessment to hopefully finish off my qualification.
“Working in early years is absolutely brilliant. I love working with children and it’s so rewarding to be able to play a part in their development.
