“Movin’ on up!”

Sophie Swann has been with Merlin for over three years now and joined Tiggy Winkles Chivenor as a Student Nurse in 2011. We’re happy to announce that she has successfully completed her Level 3 NVQ in Childcare while working at the nursery, and is now a fully qualified Nursery Nurse!

Sophie joined us with a Level 1 NVQ and committed her next year to Level 2 and the following two to Level 3. We spoke to her about what the course entailed: “Part of the Level 2 course is on-site assessment as well as the paperwork, and the Level 3 covers topics like Health & Safety, First Aid, Safe Guarding, and the development of children up to the age of 16. There were also exams covering Maths, English and ICT.”

Sophie has always wanted to work with children, and spent her school work experience at Tiggy Winkles in 2008, and also volunteered over the following years for experience, until a position opened up.

Robert Brown, Merlin Venture’s Chief Executive, said “We are proud of our staff wanting to constantly develop themselves in order to provide a better service for our young people. Congratulations to Sophie, and we are 100% behind all of our staff for their continued personal and professional development!”

Merlin Venture prides itself on providing opportunities for staff wanting to develop and learn.
