Training support: Paige's story

Paige at work in Planet Gymnastics

Paige Sullivan-Weedon, Planet Gymnastics

Paige left school part way through her A levels. She knew she wanted to work in childcare, but she didn’t have the experience to apply for an apprenticeship and get the training she needed. She received help to secure a work experience placement which led to an apprenticeship, so now she’s continuing to develop the skills she needs for her future career whilst earning.
