Morgan Williams

Morgan Williams - "I get to develop my skills while working with lovely colleagues and residents."

The opportunity to learn on the job in a varied environment where no two days are ever the same is what Morgan Williams values most about her apprenticeship.

Based in Telford at Sanctuary Supported Living's Oleander House, which provides supported housing for people with learning disabilities, Morgan's role sees her working closely with residents to ensure their needs are met and help them live as independently as possible.

"I am there to help residents with their day, offering whatever assistance they need. That could be helping them o get up and dresssed or prepare meals, making sure they have taken the right medication and offering support with their day-to-day lives."

Knowing she would like a career in care, Morgan initially chose to continue her studies at college after finishing school.

But after realising that college was not the right choice for her, she started researching apprenticeships and found the position with Sanctuary advertised online.

She said: "I thought an apprenticeship would be a great way to get hands-on experience in the field of health and social care while studying for a qualification at the same time.

"I think Sanctuary's apprenticeship programme is fantastic. It's a great organisation to work for and I get to develop my skills while working with lovely colleagues and residentsm who have all made me feel so welcome."

Morgan says the opportunity to work closely with people and help make a real difference is one of the things she enjoys most about her apprenticeship.

"I enjoy that I can have a positive impact on our residents' lives and help them fulfil whatever it is they want to do," she said.

"Every day is different, I'm constantly learning new things and I enjoy working with different residents and forming close relationships with them."
