At 17 Lorna began working in health and social care and a year later she was employed by Cartrefi Cymru, an independent living service provider. But rather than just focus on the job in hand, she wanted to achieve much more academically to support her career.

Alongside her work, Lorna began studying through learning provider Gr?p Llandrillo Menai and completed a BA (Hons) in Health and Social Care. Within 18 months of joining her employer and beginning her studying, Lorna was promoted to deputy manager and her learning isn’t finished.

“I want to progress in my career and learning will be a big part of that, whether on the job or through studies. It’s important to keep learning and adapting and vocational qualifications are one way of achieving that.”
