I’ve been in my current role for a number of years and now and I’m still thoroughly enjoying it, however I feel that I need a bit more of a challenge and due to working for a smaller, family run business there isn’t as much scope for further progression at this current time.
I have been working as a SEN 1-2-1 support worker in a preschool and have the relevant level 3 qualifications alongside peadeatric first aid, safeguarding level 2, prevent training, FGM training, food hygiene level 2m sign-a-long training and a level 2 diploma in SEN.
What I am Looking for
I am looking to broaden my horizons and push further into the role of a SEN Coordinator as I feel very passionately about the health, welfare and growth of children who have additional needs. I feel that all too often these children can be easily overlooked and issues can be mistaken for disruptive behavior rather than complex needs that require specialist help. This coupled with their day to day difficulties makes it that much harder for them to progress at the expected rate and thus they, and the family, can be left feeling low, deflated and undervalued.
Where I am hoping to find my next challenge
I feel that it is time to look at larger companies who have more opportunities to further my career and who may be able to offer additional training to enable me to fulfil my career aspirations. I am happy to consider a range of roles within my current remit and am willing to be flexible on location as well. This means I am happy to relocate to another town or city if this is required, for the right role of course. Even though I am currently working in a preschool I do have some volunteer knowledge of working in a primary school and would relish the opportunity to work with a range of children of different ages and abilities.
