Real life stories



Fazana’s story


“I would advise anyone who gets the chance to train with SwiftACI to go for it”


At 16 Fazana had completed school and was looking towards the future. Fazana had always had two main passions and had come to a crossroads between going into Childcare and joining the Army. Fazana decided she wanted to pursue a career with the Army and began training for the Army College, after a short time Fazana felt as though this may not be the career path for her, and whilst volunteering as a sports coach for young children discovered that she would definitely be more suited to a role working with children.

Fazana landed a place with the SwiftACI Academy after being approached by one of their Intake Consultant’s at her local Connexion’s. “My first day was nerve-racking, sat in a room full of girl’s that you don’t know can be pretty daunting, but the Academy Manager Elaine soon helped us all get to know each other better.”

Now working towards her Level 2 Qualification Fazana has found her stride and has settled well into the Nursery where she is employed as an Apprentice. “I love the fact that I can help these children learn new skills, it’s really rewarding.” Fazana is a key member of her team, and one of her favourite aspects of her role is creating and planning, fun and challenging new activities for all the children to get involved with. Her quick thinking and dedicated attitude has already seen her receiving praise from her room leader and the management team.

Fazana is looking forward to completing her Level 2, and already knows that she wants to stick with SwiftACI to complete her Level 3 Qualification, and has aspirations of one day owning her own Nursery. “Training with SwiftACI has given me the confidence to go into my Apprenticeship, as the work we do is interesting and explained in a way that makes it understandable and realistic; having a coach who has worked in the industry definitely helps.”
