A senior carer at Carefound Home Care has scooped two prestigious awards at the National Apprenticeship Awards.
Tina Langshaw was crowned the Adult Apprentice of the Year and the Health, Public Services & Care Apprentice of the Year at a ceremony hosted at Selby College in North Yorkshire last week.
National Apprentice Week took place on March 4-8 and is an annual celebration of apprenticeships and the positive impact they have on individuals, businesses and the wider economy.
Award ceremonies were held across the country to recognise the achievements of apprentices who have brought energy and passion into local businesses.
Langhsaw is a senior home carer at the Yorkshire office of elderly home care provider, Carefound Home Care, where she has completed her Level 3 Apprenticeship in Health & Social Care and is working towards her Level 5.
Lorna Dawber, Home Care Manager at Carefound Home Care in Yorkshire, said: “We are delighted for Tina who is a great example of the benefits apprenticeships can bring to an organisation like Carefound Home Care.
“She has been able to achieve a nationally recognised qualification whilst also progressing on her career pathway which ultimately benefits our service.
“Tina is a great role model for anybody considering an apprenticeship and thoroughly deserves this recognition during National Apprenticeship Week 2019.”
Carefound Home Care, which is rated ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) at its offices in Yorkshire and Cheshire, continues to expand the availability of apprenticeships and diploma qualifications to its professional home carers as part of its mission to offer the best employment packages in the home care industry.
