• Planning and executing large events on a monthly basis.
• Teaching classes and training a large team.
Through this job, I have also been able to work extensively with teenagers from deprived areas, and difficult family lives. This involves weekly groups and one-on- one meetings. This taught me to give supportive advice in unstable situations, to build friendships, while remaining professional, to carry an administrative role while keeping time management and organisational skills at the forefront. I also worked alongside many other departments of the charity such as the accountant and the safeguarding coordinator. This job provided me with a wide-ranging level of experience with children and young people with various learning difficulties. This included and is not limited to SEMH, SEBD, ASD and ADHD.
