'I love that we are working to raise standards in care one carer at a time'

Skills Advisor

“Hi my name is Sarah. I have recently joined the fabulous Training Works 4 U team as a Home Based Lead Generator and am absolutely thrilled to be here. As a Lead Generator my role involves speaking with business owners about the educational opportunities for their staff by helping them to gain access to free training that will up-skill their employees in their careers. I am always happy to help and discuss how to best use the fantastic free learning resources available. To be able to assist business owners help their staff achieve further education and unlock their learning potential is an absolute joy. In my spare time my partner and I love to explore new places in and around the UK. I also like to paint as a way of relaxing – though I still have a lot to learn….. as such I don’t think I will exhibiting paintings any time soon. I look forward to speaking with you in the future.”

Kim Hagan

'With the right, tailored, training, people can achieve anything'

Skills and Development Coach

“In my 13 years of industry experience, I have worked in the public sector running large kitchens and cleaning teams, for both education and commercial services. During this time, I have mentored work experience participants, and have trained numerous staff to go on and run their own units. During the Coronavirus lockdown, I was given the opportunity to work from home alongside another department, to get online learning accounts set up for all the catering staff within the organisation. This led me to undertake my training, so that I was able to help others achieve their learning ambitions as a career. I love to see my participants achieve their goals, especially when they think that they are not able to commit to their learning and development due to their other commitments. If participants want to progress their knowledge and understanding, then there should be no barriers.

Dawn Sherratt

'I love that we are working to raise standards in care one carer at a time'

Skills Development Coach

“I am a people person which allows me to find a common ground with all my participants. I find ways to support each person that suits their needs, some require extra support, some may only need a regular check in. I have been able to strengthen the relationships between employers and participants, and always aim to build all relationships further. I love to see my participants achieve their goals, especially when they’ve been written off as ‘non achievers’ in the past, seeing them receive their certificates brings me joy! When outside of work, I love to see my family.”

Angela Meadows

'Assisting others to reach their goals, develop confidence and identify their skills'

Skills Development Coach

“When I work with participants, I make sure to know a lot about them; their role, their company, ambitions, learning style, how we should communicate and how I can support them. I love to see my participants develop their confidence and see their full potential. When I’m not at work I love swimming, socialising, canoeing, quad biking, the list goes on!”

Kate Aird

'I love making a difference to people and helping them gain knowledge and skills that they didn’t have before'

Skills Development Coach

“Being a Skills Development Coach, I provide participants with advice and guidance, acting as a point of contact for support. I got into this line of work because I had previously completed an apprenticeship myself but didn’t have the best assessor, so I undertook my training so I could assess and help others to a better standard than what I experienced. I’m also a people person and love new challenges! When I’m not at work, I love spending time with my little boy exploring the outdoors. I also spend lots of time with my extended family.”
