Emma Lambkin - e2e Progressing to Management Position
Emma Lambkin came to JHP Employability in Stoke-on-Trent in May 2004 having left school without sitting her exams due to personal issues at home. Emma then went to Sheppey College where she had a negative experience in not enjoying the course, resulting in her withdrawing before she could achieve anything. It was one hurdle after another for Emma until she was directed to JHP Employability by a friend when Emma decided that she would like to have a career in the care sector.
Emma joined the e2e programme and was supported to complete literacy and numeracy Key Skills qualifications as well as securing a work placement at a care home. Whilst Emma was on her work placement, she experienced some initial issues with time-keeping and phoning in sick, but following discussion with her manager and tutor, Emma overcome this and was offered a permanent position. Emma went on to complete her level 2 Apprenticeship in Health and Social care with sister division JHP Training and continued to blossom, demonstrating natural ability as a carer.
Emma then changed jobs and was working at Medway Hospital on a secure Mental Health Ward when she contacted JHP Training to undertake a Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship. It was a joy to see the change in Emma from a girl who lacked confidence to a confident and determined young lady.
Emma’s determination coupled with the support from JHP Employability has given her the career that she dreamt of and is now studying to become a Registered Manager whilst supporting the development of others.
