It’s a brand new year so that means its time to announce the first Apprentice of the Month of 2020!


January Apprentice of the Month goes to….


Gracie Poynter


Gracie is currently doing her Level 2 Supporting Teaching and Learning at Crowdys Hill School and has already made an impact. Both of her Line Managers, Trudy and Rachel, have given her a glowing report…


“We knew from the moment we read Gracie’s application form that she would fit perfectly in our current team and that we wanted her as an apprentice before we had even interviewed her.  When we did it was clear that she had done her research about the school and asked lots of relevant, intelligent questions.  Gracie expressed an enthusiasm and a thirst to learn new things.


Gracie has quickly become part of the team, she is caring, dedicated, conscientious, patient and kind.  She is very pro-active and organised especially when it comes to her college work.  She always asks for help when needed but equally she can think on her feet, adapt as necessary and work independently when needed.  She is flexible and copes well with changes to her usual timetable even at a moment’s notice.  When Gracie was off sick recently she called in everyday to tell us if she had a break duty, usually fed a child, or was a 1:1 so the children wouldn’t be left, this shows dedication above and beyond to the job. We think she is an absolute star.”


We also spoke to Gracie’s Learner Account Manager Shelley, who had the following to say…


“Gracie has been with the Crowdys teaching team as an apprentice since November of 2019 and from the first moment that I met her I knew that she would be perfect for the role. She comes to work every day with a positivity that is infectious and has been noticed by every member of staff and the students love having her in their class. When catching up with Gracie it is apparent that she has found her niche and the environment at Crowdys is perfect for her to progress her skills and confidence of working with young people. Well done Gracie!”
