Current Volunteer Position,
Mentor at Borderlands Charity October 2017-present
My current role has been very valuable. As a mentor supporting asylum seekers and refugees I provide practical support relevant to a mentee in order to guide them into independent and productive lives. I am currently working with a mentee providing English lessons in preparation for College in September. Maintaining effective clear notes on feedback and all communications with the various professionals involved with users of the service is also a vital aspect of my role.
Engagement Worker at Learning Partnership West October 2017-March 2018
The stated aim of this role was to deliver targeted support, education and training, and routes into work for young people aged 11-25 from disadvantaged backgrounds and in doing so to promote safer, more inclusive communities. As such, I managed a case load of vulnerable young people and undertook assessments to identify strengths, weaknesses and barriers to progression in order to deliver targeted action plans based on their needs. The work was split between the administration of the aforementioned assessments and plans, maintaining records on IYSS and liaising with service providers, specialist support agencies and community organisations and more practical work such as home visits, open access sessions and delivering targeted group work.

Learning Support Assistant at Fairfield High School, Bristol September 2015-August 2017
My main function in this role was to provide academic support in the classroom to KS3 and GCSE level students. As part of this I planned and led interventions with small groups or 1:1 as well as mentor small groups of assigned students. The students I supported had many Special Educational Needs ranging from cognitive, multi-sensory and physical impairments to social and emotional difficulties. As such, a lot of my work time was spent modifying learning resources and identifying key focus areas for the children to study. Further, I spent a lot of time updating records using the SIMS database and refreshing my knowledge of and suitably applying safeguarding, child protection and equal opportunities policies. Alongside receiving HLTA status I underwent various training in working with students with SEN including working towards my level 1 certificate in British Sign Language and training in working with students with social and emotional difficulties.
