Celebrations are underway at Specsavers in Taunton as store manager Nathan Burn qualifies as a dispensing optician.

New opportunities to progress

Following three years of study Nathan has qualified as the fifth dispensing optician in the store and will soon be joined by two of his colleagues who will qualify next year. Nathan said: ‘I’m so happy to have achieved this new qualification!

Looking back, I can honestly say the hardships encountered during my course were well worth it. Not only have my studies prepared me for the position and responsibilities of a DO, they have set my life on a new career path.’

Emma Denham, store director at Specsavers Taunton said: ‘We’re so proud of our highly certificated team here at Specsavers Taunton – well done to Nathan for his new qualification!

Providing a high quality of eyecare services

‘We have a huge range of opportunities to progress at the store and our goal is to have every dispenser certificated with a qualification, whether it’s through cert 3 or 4, which allows them to build their knowledge further, or a full dispensing optician qualification.

It’s important for us to help our staff progress as much as possible so that we can continue giving the community the best eyecare, using the most up to date equipment including new tablets to select and fit customer’s glasses.’
