Time in the industry: Delun joined Abacare in 2015 as a care worker and went on to be promoted to Regional Manager and then became a Field Care Supervisor in 2017.

Twenty-three-year-old Delun said: “I am absolutely thrilled to bits to have completed my Level 5 course and receive my certificates.

“It has been a lot of hard work, but it is so worth it, and I was thrilled to hear that I was the fastest finishing candidate that the training company has ever had, completing the course in eight months instead of the usual 18.

“I have now also signed up to complete my Level 5 training in health and social care. I already have a degree in the subject, however it is based on theory work and I wanted to finalise my qualification by re-doing the course in a work-based environment.

“I’d like to thank the team at Abacare for allowing me to gain qualifications alongside my job. They are a fantastic support and I would recommend anyone else out there interested in working in the care industry to give it a go. If you have an affinity for care work, it’s an industry where you can have a career for life.”
