A month after starting a Higher Apprenticeship, Lee Price had to deal with the devastating death of Rob, her husband of 36 years. Support from her colleagues, employer, learning provider and family encouraged her to continue with the qualification, which she completed nine months early.

Lee, 59, Powys County Council’s Senior Quality and Environmental Standards Officer, undertook the Higher Apprenticeship (Level 4) in Systems and Operations Management through Cambrian Training.

Lee said:

“Losing my husband is devastating, but knowing that he was hugely supportive of my learning and pleased that I was pushing myself to gain qualifications has kept me going through the hardest times and given me a new focus and purpose in life.”
