Wayne has completed the CMI level 3 Certificate in First Line Management with PNE Development.
Wayne is the Placement Manager for NYAS, a children’s charity supplying advocacy services to children, young people, their parents and other professionals.
Wayne was asked by his organisation to do the qualification to fill a gap in training that was identified across the organisation.
Sometimes it was a challenge to stay on track but with the support of his assessor he was guided in the right direction.
By doing the qualification Wayne has increased his strategic awareness, improved his management skills, improved his ability to manage resources and increased his confidence. Wayne says that he has improved his ability to pass on his skills to colleagues.
“I am now part of an innovation group that is looking into ways of changing the way the organisation works with outside stakeholders.”
As a result of this qualification he is now undertaking another qualification in management which he hopes will lead to promotion.
He says that the experience has been enjoyable and rewarding and says that it has opened doors into other aspects of management.
