Star Learner Award - March 2019

Congratulations to Anthony Ulamen from L&Q Living!

Our Star Learner Award is given to learners who’ve really gone the extra mile, bringing energy and passion into their organisation and showing real dedication to progressing with their Apprenticeship.

Anthony is very dedicated to his work, having always exceeded expectations and completing learning tasks to a very high standard. He works hard to make a difference to the lives of those he support and we have all seen a real, fundamental improvement across his care practice since he began his Apprenticeship. He brightens up the training sessions he attends with his positive and proactive attitude and is always a pleasure to work with.

Anthony told us ‘I am very humbled and excited to have won the Star Learner  Award. It has been  fantastic over the last 12 months I started the Apprenticeship programme  training with UTS. The Training support team has being great and the learning out comes, experiences and practical skills I have acquired has been the best. My development in social care skills, knowledge and implementation of care that I learnt during my training has without a doubt enhanced my ability to execute my roles effectively to promote and better the wellbeing of residents in my care at Moyers Lodge’.

Working for L&Q Living, Anthony delivers care and support services to people with a diverse range of support needs. All of L&Q’s services are rated Good or Outstanding by the CQC, and it’s great employees like Anthony who are selected, supported and developed through high quality learning programmes by L&Q that deserve to be recognised as a driving force behind this great achievement.

His manager Albert William told us: ‘Anthony is a capable and driven individual, his confidence has grown over the period that he has been working with us and he has developed a good understanding of his role as a support worker. One thing I have picked up is that he is very client focused and has developed a good rapport with his clients and other staff. I am delighted that he has been chosen to receive the star learner award.’

John Bryson, Head of Academy at L&Q said: ‘Anthony is one of our hardworking support workers from our care schemes who is highly valued by L&Q.  We are delighted that he has been chosen as Star Learner, which is great recognition for his dedication to his job and his studies.  The L&Q Academy is pleased to be able to work with UTS to train apprentices and qualify our workforce’.

Well done Anthony, your £50 gift voucher is on it’s way!

Whilst we have a wide range of programmes written and ready to go, and within any training you have in-house, we will incorporate your organisations policies, procedures and paperwork into our delivery as standard practice, we understand that sometimes you may still need a little something else, something that makes it even more specific to your organisation and your business objectives.

The Care Act 2014, together with a range of regulations and statutory guidance, is the base upon which social care will develop over the next few decades. It enshrines the new statutory principle of individual wellbeing, the driving force behind the Act, and makes it the responsibility of local authorities to promote wellbeing when carrying out any of their care and support functions.
