Find out the aspirations of one Doncaster teenager: Chloe Green
Chloe Green is a 17 year old looked after young person who has lived with her foster carers for the past 4 years after her parents split.
Determined to help others, Chloe was taken on as a modern apprentice by Doncaster Council and works as a business support assistant. Her ultimate ambition is to become a social worker and interpreter for the deaf. To further this ambition she has recently completed her Level 2 British Sign Language course at Sheffield City College.
As Chloe is coming up to the age of 18 she will no longer be in care and is looking at the next step in her continued development for local jobs or further training - which could include embarking on a level 3 qualification in business admin.
She has been supported all the way by Ian Walker, Head of Service for Children Care as her personal mentor, Chloe explains: "Ian has been great. He has supported me in striving to reach my career aspirations."
Chloe is a well liked member of the Mentor Scheme that is supported by the Doncaster Children's Services Trust that helps other apprentices and those wanting to become an apprentice as they can relate to Chloe being a fellow young person.
Chloe is a true inspiration to other young service users and was recently chosen to present a Christmas card to Edward Timpson, Minister for Children and Families at the official launch of the Doncaster Children's Services Trust.
