A member of staff at Specsavers in Bridgend is celebrating after completing an optical qualification.

Six months of studying

Gareth Davies, ophthalmic dispensing assistant, has earned his certificate three qualification in Ophthalmic Dispensing after six months of studying and working in-store.

The qualification is gained through a combination of everyday work as a dispensing assistant in which the student learns based around exercises and resources in the work environment.

Gareth was assessed in a variety of dispensing areas including the anatomy of the eye, understanding visual problems, spectacle dispensing and the study of lens materials.

Pride ourselves on staff development

Mrs Hickson said: ‘Gareth has only been with us for one year and in this time he has worked tirelessly to achieve his certificate three qualification, showing real commitment and dedication to his professional development.

At Specsavers, we pride ourselves on giving staff the opportunity to develop themselves and do everything we can to nurture and support our team to progress in their careers.

I’d like to congratulate Gareth on his success and look forward to helping more of our team with their qualifications in the coming year.’
