I applied for the role of First Aider at Winterbourne Academy after spending 10 years working part time as a higher level Teaching Assistant in a primary school and a Health Adviser in the NHS. I wanted to try working in a secondary school as I believed I could have more impact.
“I enjoy the pastoral element of listening to young people”
As a First Aider, my role is varied and very busy. I particularly enjoy the pastoral element – for example listening to and advising young people who are trying to cope with stress and anxiety.
Olympus is an emerging Academy Trust and I have found that they have been willing to listen and adapt to new ways of working.
