'I absolutely love my job at TW4U as I get to speak with lots of lovely people everyday'

Skills Advisor

“As the longest serving member of the Employer and Participant Advisor Team I have worked all the way through the pandemic, overcoming many hurdles and coming out the other side with even more determination to bring businesses on-board. The people I speak to everyday are so grateful to be offered the funded courses. I have found that most business owners and staff aren’t even aware the funding is available so it’s definitely worthwhile offering a service which is beneficial to so many people. On a personal level, I enjoy going to the Gym every morning at 6am (very disciplined) and spending time with my daughter going on shopping trips and eating out at weekends.”

'I am always happy to help and discuss how to best use the fantastic free learning resources available'

Skills Advisor

“Hi, my name is Sarah. I have recently joined the fabulous Training Works 4 U team as an Skills Advisor and am absolutely thrilled to be here. As an Employer and Participant Advisor 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 be exhibiting paintings any time soon. I look forward to speaking with you in the future.”

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!”

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.”

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.”
