Exceptional Apprentice

Exceptional Apprentice

Since starting at Tameside College, Stevie Brown has progressed a great deal, from studying on the Nursing Cadet course, she is now creating her own business ideas that will make even Sir Alan Sugar jealous.

Stevie has studied with Tameside College since 2006, whilst studying she worked in the College’s Dovestones Centre, a specialist learning provision for students with profound and complex learning difficulties. Since completing the Nursing course, Stevie progressed onto the Advanced Apprenticeship in Health and Social Care.

Recently Stevie has started attending an Enterprise course at the College, which provides students with business experience and the chance to create business ideas. Along with colleague, Jayne Higgin, they have created a social business which will benefit the Dovestones Centre. They are currently in the process of setting up a Social Club for the students, as they have a very limited amount of evening activities running in the area. They are currently meeting with service users and family members to ensure students get the most out of the Social Club.

Stevie’s tutor, Carol Iverson said, "She has been an excellent student and has developed an in-depth knowledge of working in a care environment. All of her work has been completed to the highest standard and within time limits. Stevie is an exceptional example of a student who is committed to learning, is motivated and driven by the need to provide first class care for service users."
