The Apprentice of the Year, Sports, Education & Childcare is Ryan. Congratulations!

Ryan started off as a very anxious learner with low confidence. He had dropped out of further education as he didn’t feel he was very academic. By chance Ryan saw an opportunity to complete a sports coaching course advertised on social media and decided to give it a go and sign up. His attitude and attendance were excellent and he thrived in this learning environment.

As Ryan’s confidence grew, he progressed through the courses and eventually found his ideal position as a Learning Support Assistant as Ysgol Maes Y Felin. Again, he thrived in this environment and stood out in his role as teaching support.

His workplace mentors speak very highly of him and how he enjoys helping the children in their learning environment. He gained excellent results for his workplace observations and although he struggled sometimes, his academic work developed and progressed to a good standard. Even gaining Level 2 qualifications in Numeracy, Literacy and Digital Literacy alongside his teaching program.

Ryan is now employed at the school and is currently working towards his Level 3 Teaching qualification. He is enjoying the support from his tutors and listens to feedback carefully to further develop himself as a confident and competent individual.
