I work on a one-to-one basis with a little boy with ADHD and behavioural problems. My daily role involves hosting a Breakfast Club before the school day begins, providing support in lessons and hosting various afterschool clubs including Multi-sports, Art and Games Clubs. Working 1:1 can be challenging, but also rewarding as you develop your relationship with the child and watch them grow.
What did you enjoy most about being a student at Leeds Trinity?
I appreciated most the small size of Leeds Trinity. It felt like a small, close community: very interpersonal and friendly. The tutors were approachable and I always felt that my views and opinions were valued.
Any final thoughts on being a student at Leeds Trinity?
Being a student at Leeds Trinity was an amazing experience and one that I will value for the rest of my life. I met some fantastic people and learnt some life lessons that provided me with the skills to achieve.
One of the greatest lessons I learnt was that you really do get out of life what you put into it. That hard work does pay off. Learn to be happy with yourself and know what you want in life but also what you need.
Do you think you got more than a degree from your time studying with us? If so, what else did you take away from your experience?
Personally, I feel that University was a life changing experience for me, I think it completely reformed my outlook on life and made me realise that anything is possible when I put my mind to it - no goal I set is unrealistic.
Can you tell us a little bit more about your current role and what a typical day entails?
I am now working as a Case Manager for the Centre of Neurosciences for Leeds Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust. I manage a team that investigate when incidents occur within the Neurosciences Department. In my job, every day is different, which is one of the reasons I enjoy it so much.
On a daily basis, I am required to travel across sites to different hospitals in Leeds. One of the main responsibilities I have is to liaise between consultants and patients to gather feedback, which essentially gives the basis of my investigations into what went wrong and why. I believe that the confidence which I developed at University has helped immensely when communicating to a diverse group of people on a daily basis.
Students would normally be expected to hold a good honours degree in a related subject such as Exercise & Sports Science, Public Health, Health Psychology etc. Candidates with degrees in non-related subjects will also be considered if they hold employment experience or can demonstrate a committed interest in health and wellbeing, as will professionals without a degree.
