“Being a carer allowes me to work, study and still have time with my family.”

Molly, our candidate, says that the training was great, easy to complete and flexible so that she can spend more time with her family. She’s now working as a support worker in Christchurch.
“I am glad I made that choice, because of the knowledge and skills I acquired through studying Level 2, I am now more culturally competent and can carry out my job with ease. I’ll keep improving my skills so that I can have in-depth knowledge and be able to support different kinds of people with different circumstances effectively.”
