Janice decided to start her apprenticeship journey to gain more post-hospital care experience following her previous career within the ambulance service.
With a particular interest in supporting those with illnesses such as Parkinson’s disease, dementia and Huntington’s disease, Janice has embarked on her apprenticeship with a strong passion to know how best to support, communicate and work with these individuals.
Wanting both experience and more knowledge, Janice felt that an apprenticeship was the best way forward so that she could be hands on with regards to furthering her education.
In her personal life, Janice spends time with her husband and has a dog that she loves spending time with. She looks after her elderly mother, who has dementia, and supports her father and sister in caring for her.
The apprenticeship programme is laid out really well, with clear modules and learning journeys. I’ve been given ideas which are helping me work more efficiently and I’m gaining fantastic work experience alongside gaining my qualification.
My induction was fantastic, it provided an invaluable foundation for my apprenticeship and made it very clear how things needed to be done.
The Herros team are approachable and friendly; it’s made clear that we work for Herros and the levels of service that are expected from us.
Although she loves working in care, the ultimate goal for Janice is to work in nursing or training, specifically in the clinical sector. She has expressed an interest to potentially work in both of these, but she is happy to see where life takes her. She is enthusiastic about the idea of taking another apprenticeship programme to reach her goals.
