Worked here a while back, I was working in the residential home on site next the gym. Students were lovely, had a couple that would play up, but staff were not interested in helping you if they weren't assigned to that student on the day. I didn't have a home life cuz my shifts were awful, and not one member of staff was willing to swap. My hours got cut down after the first year, which I wasn't told in my interview would happen. You were on your own alot, and if students were not ready in the morning for College, night staff were not allowed to go home until they went, altho we were there to relieve them. It wasn't a bad place to work, but management needed working definitely when I was there. I left unhappy.
School holidays off.
No breaks. No support. No life
Enjoy the work at umberslade garden nurseries. Very relaxed atmosphere lovely setting I enjoyed working alongside the volunteers, is good to help them to learn new skills, plugs taking cuttings repotting plants. Giving advice to customers as and when needed about the plants they can choose for their garden. I sometimes helped in the kitchen cooking breakfast making lunches helped with the afternoon teas serving customers.
I was working part-time at the weekend
The level of understanding of understanding people with different needs, conditions or disabilities was very poor considering there are high functioning disability college. In many areas they were very discriminating and very non supportive. They need to learn to be open minded that people with disabilities come in many shapes and form also some people with disabilities can actually work
Learnt about different conditions
helping students to develop their independent daily living skills in accordance with their individual care plan and term targets, providing care and support for young adults who have complex and challenging needs in terms of their behaviour and emotional, psychological and developmental well-being. teaching and supporting students with different life skills for example how to budget and getting them involved in the community all of which will prepare them for when they are ready to live independently.
half term holidays
Trabajar en un call center genera mucha tensión porque atiendes a muchísimas personas al día, de las cuales el 90% habla con disgusto. Así que necesitas ser empático y comunicarte de manera asertiva.
Aprendes a trabajas bajo presión
