In a high stakes environment it’s reasy to get stressed out by everything happening around you but at Church of Scotland its simple to keep your cool and stay level headed.

I enjoyed gaining valuable vocational experience in cleaning, and being involved with the life of the church while there. My employers ensured that my cleaning tasks were varied, and included setting up tables for events, where I had the chance to meet people and get acquainted with people there, who were very friendly towards me. I also gained practical experience in correct handling of cleaning equipment and chemicals, which I am also grateful for.

A typical day at wellhall would be to get the handover from previous shift and then checking on residents. I have had a great deal of training including svq level3, PDA supervision in health and care and have received a lot of training regarding the job for the care of the elderly.I enjoyed working and caring for the residents at wellhall. I was trained to the highest standard and wish to continue in this way at any future position I may get.

A typical day at work was being organised for your meal times, collecting supplies and transporting them to your unit. starting to prepare laundry by stripping beds, collecting soiled clothes and general tidying up of childrens rooms. preparing and cooking your meals for the allocated times. clearing up after meals and preparing for next meal time.Management were usually never seen.Although we occasionally worked as a team i.e for functions, we mostly worked on our own. I did however get on well with my co- workers.The hardest part of the job was the every day challenging behaviour from the children. As these children were in care and taken from their natural suroundings they could be very abusive so the job was stressful and challenging.The enjoyable factor of the job was seeing the changes occurr in the children after time and witness them mature.
Pros
health benifits, wages, hours, collegues
Cons
enviroment, lack of communication, abusive behaviour
