I have worked for Apex Scotland, RE:SET Inclusion Service, for 5 years and have learned so much from the young people! My role is now split between RE:SET Team Leader and peripatetic support, where I cover Levenmouth Academy and Dunfermline High School.
I am privileged to have witnessed so many positive changes in the young people I have worked with, many moving onto positive destinations including college and employment.
I work in the RE:SET service at Kirkland High School. My background is working with young people in secondary schools and have been employed in many roles including Learning Support Assistant, Student Support Assistant, NVQ Assessor, and most recently Adolescent Support Worker. I have worked in several schools, in different countries, over the years and find although every school operates differently, young people are the same, whether they’re from Scotland or Germany – all individuals, with their own sets of beliefs/values and life circumstances, but all young people! My aim is to support young people during a pivotal and what can be a difficult and stressful time of their lives. Every day I learn from them and hopefully they will learn from me!
