UK’s biggest scheme
Kammi has embarked upon a rewarding career in eyecare with the opticians’ Optical Apprenticeship programme, the UK’s biggest government-accredited scheme.
Apprentice, Kammi, said: ‘Specsavers has given me a great career opportunity and the team in Camborne have really made me feel like I’m part of the family. In time I would like to go on to be a dispensing optician.’
Specsavers Camborne store director, Alan Honeybone, added: ‘We believe that apprenticeships are a great way to unlock the potential of young people and provide a way for them to embark on successful and fulfilling careers.
'It's also a great opportunity to give back to the communities we serve.'
