High Needs

At Nova Training we aim to provide training and education for all who can benefit from it, including those with Education, Health & Care Plans. Nova Training believes that all people are of equal value and seeks to promote positive attitudes towards diversity and eliminate discrimination. An EHCP replaces Statements of special educational needs (SSEN) and Learning Difficulties Assessments for children and young people with special educational needs.

Katie's Apprenticeship Journey At LWC Drinks

Katie is exactly what you want from an apprentice. She is someone who embraces the program that she is on. I know from her employer that she tries really hard in the workplace to excel at her job role and is proactive in learning new skills to push herself forward. During our apprenticeship time, Katie is always engaged. She wants to take part, she wants to learn something new, she makes notes, and she questions how she can be better.
Her submitted work is always well-researched and nicely written with good content. Katie does have a vulnerable side, as she lacks confidence - or at least she did do - and it's rewarding to see her grow and develop in this area. Using her apprenticeship to gain knowledge and skills and to develop her work-life behaviours, Katie is using the apprenticeship with enthusiasm to build the foundation for where her career will eventually take her.

This commitment to her work has been noticed by her employers and as such, she has been promoted within the company. She gets on well with all the staff within the store - and always goes out of her way to help everyone. Megan always has a great attitude, she approaches every situation with a 'can do attitude - even topics that she might not be a fan of. Megan has been a pleasure to work with - and by starting her apprenticeship in Customer Service - now has a variety of different options in front of her. I am proud of how she has improved and I look forward to her getting a distinction on her apprenticeship. Amanda Reynolds - Apprenticeship Coach
