My name is Angela and I originally trained as a nurse. Then after having three children, I went into Health and Social Care management. I was a Care Manager for 22 years.
Since then I have been working as an Assessor with RTS training and love my work, especially passing on my knowledge and experience to those working as careers and the managers who support them.
I love meeting new candidates and visiting the care homes and meeting all the clients.
I have been with working as an Assessor for RTS Training since 2009, delivering the Health and Social Care and Childcare NVQ's along with delivering short courses such as Moving and Handling.
Everyday is different and I find it really rewarding to see people develop in their job role.
I started working for RTS in April 2013. I have been a qualified Nurse (adult branch) since 2005 and still work weekends as a Nurse. Prior to this I was a nursing auxiliary for 2 years and worked throughout my training.
I joined RTS as a Health and Social Care Assessor as I felt I needed a change of direction and have never looked back! I have 2 young sons and live a very busy life, but I wouldn't want it any other way, as I hate being bored.
I have recently completed the Train The Trainer course in Moving and Handling and I am now providing this training session. I also am passionate about preventing pressure sores developing and love to pass on any knowledge in this area.
I try to build up a rapport with my candidates and the homes/organisations they work in, as I find it aids their experience of learning and makes the whole process more conductive to learning.
Thanks for reading and hope to meet you soon.
I'm Mo. I grew up in Market Rasen, Lincolnshire and I have a daughter.
In 2011 having spent most of my working life building a career in Administration positions and undertaking NVQ training in Business Administration, IT and Management, I found myself wanting a new challenge and I took a "leap of faith" and started at the bottom of the career ladder again as a Health Care Worker.
I knew a little about care work as I had worked for a Nursing and Care Agency in the past and had spoken with our care staff but I soon had my eyes opened as to just how much hard work and dedication it takes.
I was determined to be the best I could and embarked on a HSC NVQ 3. I wrote a pen portrait back then about how I wanted to combine my administration skills and care skills at some point in the future. Thanks to the support and faith of my RTS Assessors I have now also managed to undertake my assessor training.
I am working as an Assessor and loving every moment of it. It is such a rewarding feeling, knowing that you are helping other individuals to achieve goals in their life, help to progress their careers and also to ensure that the standard and quality of the work that they do is of the highest.
