The Learning Journey

Joann Marie Willis

My ambition is to have a role in management so when my boss supported my request to do an NVQ in Team Leading, as part of an apprenticeship with Paragon Skills, I was determined to make the most of it. I picked units that were out of my comfort zone and now I have new responsibilities from my employer. I’m now doing my second qualification with Paragon and I’m looking forward to furthering myself in my career.
