Narumon Evans, otherwise known to her friends and colleagues as Mon, has worked in care for over seven years and is celebrating her recent success having achieved her Health and Social Care Diploma Level 2 with Quest.
Mon’s first introduction to her blossoming care career was questioned by her family and friends as they would often ask: “Why do you work in care? It’s such a hard job!” Her reply was simply this: “It is hard but so rewarding! I love seeing the difference I make to the lives of the residents. I love to make them happy, it makes me feel good knowing I am helping people."
Mon continues: “Gaining a qualification in care was my next goal and I signed up to do my Health & Social Care Diploma with Quest. I received so much support, Quest worked at a pace to suit my learning style. Having completed my Diploma it has given me the confidence to believe in myself and I am keen to further my training in the care sector.”
Donna Honniball, who is a Registered Manager at St Bridgets, Bournemouth, says: “Although I appreciate that having a qualification to work in care is now a requirement, I think from a business point of view it is far more than that. The qualification contributes to and compliments the skills, knowledge and overall performance of employees working in the care sector. It is really valued by us because it not only forms part of our evidence that staff are correctly trained, but it is wonderful to watch our staff grow in confidence and see how much this qualification means to them upon successful completion. Some staff are now feeling so positive that they are looking forward to progressing onto their Level 3 to enable them to enter a more senior role.”
Donna concludes: “Bev Colla is our Assessor here at St Bridgets and all the carers value her enormously because of her support and encouragement coupled with her wonderful ability to make learning such fun. We can’t thank Quest enough!”
Bev Colla, Health & Social Care Assessor at Quest adds: “Mon was a delightful lady to assess - she showed so much dedication and welcomed any help and support given. This was testament to the fact she achieved her qualification four months earlier than her planned end date. Well done Mon!”
