News from our former students

Hey Ms FP,

Thought I would share some exciting news with you and all the teachers and staff at Leeming Eduction Support Centre.

Last week I managed to get a job at Aquinas College learning about hospitality in their boarding house and kitchen. I started my new job as a Kitchen Assistant today and it is a permanent position.

I had registered with an employment support agency at the end of last year. My mum saw this job on Seek so sent in my resume. I got a phone call to arrange a phone interview and my support worker sat with me during this interview. Mum helped me out and we wrote some questions and answers out so that I was prepared which was really helpful. They were that impressed they asked me to attend a formal interview later that day. Mum, Kev and my support worker went with me and my support worker and I did the interview. It went for over an hour! Steven my new boss gave me the job on the spot! They know all about my special needs and disabilities and said that they were very impressed with my hard work and determination. Read the full story by Jacob Whyte
