Apprentice of the Month: Grace Kinggett (March)
We would like to congratulate Grace on being awarded our Apprentice of the Month. Here is what our winner had to say -
When I found out I felt really happy as I have worked hard on my work.
I love working for Paramount as I have the freedom to grow in my role and my team. Daily, I discover how much knowledge I have on the company for someone of my age, and I hope to learn even more in the future.
The support I receive when I want to go on additional courses to help me learn is great, and Paramount are also happy for me to do so in work time, and they also fund it.
It's great when you hear such positive feedback about a student. Here is why her Training Officer, Marion, nominated Grace -
Grace has just achieved her Level 2 Business Administration Apprenticeship and I am glad to nominate Grace and I believe she deserves the recognition!
Grace has experienced some difficult times during her apprenticeship but this has no way impacted her performance and commitment to the course.
At the beginning of her apprenticeship, Grace was a novice to the industry but she acceptingly took on board advice from her Director by researching the industry in her own time, to improve and expand her knowledge base of the housing industry. This has been reflected in her confidence speaking to clients over the phone and the work she has produced for her course.
Since I became responsible for her assessments in December 2019, Grace has stepped up her dedication to the course by completing all her actions on time and working very proactively to produce high quality, expert work. She works extremely well within the office, supporting her colleagues and she is a vital part of her team.
Grace is a great asset to her employer as well as MidKent College.
Grace is based at Paramount and her employer Grant De-Negri, Managing Director had this to say -
Grace, what a journey you have been on in the two years of being a vital cog at Paramount.
Your professionalism, confidence, and knowledge of ‘The Paramount Way’ have more than impressed me. You listen to advice and constructive criticism, and you continue to grow within yourself and your role. To say I am proud of you is an understatement.
You have been through a lot in your life at such a young age and never do you play the victim. You have become a very knowledgeable young lady, who is very bright and aware of the world around you.
I look forward to seeing what you achieve in the next two years. I know I will not be disappointed.
Paramount is very lucky to have you.
Well done Grace!
