Julie, Education Support Worker at Sense College Knapwell 

"Well where do I start... the best part of my job is having the pleasure to work with the most amazing young people who, despite any disability, have the most amazing positive attitudes to life and their learning. Everyday is indeed different. I enjoy creating different ways so that each individual has the opportunity to access a varied and fun education that is right for them. Our young learners have a lovely bond which each other at Sense College."

Sandra, Deputy Manager at Sense College Peterborough

"There are certain aspects of my role that I thoroughly enjoy, such as providing and supporting staff with training opportunities to learn and develop additional skills and knowledge. This enables them to support the learners to a high standard and aspire to their career opportunities within the organisation. The role is challenging and extremely diverse but one which gives me so much job satisfaction and motivation, I look forward to attending work each day – every day is different."

Arindam, Education Support Worker at Sense College TouchBase Pears

“Soon after joining Sense two years ago I got an opportunity to work at Sense College. It’s not only rewarding professionally but it’s emotionally very enriching. I feel proud and happy when I see my students making progress every day and I’m able to be a positive influence in their lives. Within Sense College, I also play critical roles as an Art Coordinator and as a Wellbeing Lead.”

Davina, Education Coordinator at Sense College Aldeby

“I’ve worked at Sense for just over a year now. When starting at Sense, I was impressed with my co-worker’s enthusiasm and dedication in providing a safe and stimulating learning environment that suits all learners. Sense's approach and curriculum promotes individuality. The learners’ individual programmes are person-centred, which builds on existing skills and knowledge promoting independence, their aspirations, and most importantly allowing them the opportunity to be the best they can. The job has its challenges, juggling education and the healthcare needs, but watching as learners develop and overcome barriers through their determination and hard work is the best reward a teacher could ask for.”

Mark, Support Worker at Sense College Rothwell

"I’ve been working for Sense for 18 months, and this has been the most varied job I’ve ever had in my life. No two days are really the same! My job is to help individuals unlock their inner skills and potential and to push them and support them everyday. We have music sessions, art, sensory stories and much more. We teach as well as support and  all work together as a team. I can honestly say that this job is soul nourishing, very satisfying and incredibly fun." 

Carrie, Deputy Manager at Sense College Dereham 

"I get involved in all aspects of the centre. I work with the centre staff and learners to make sure the activities we offer are interesting and suitable for the individuals, so they enjoy their time at Sense, develop and thrive. I meet with families, healthcare professionals and authorities involved in the lives of our learners. The learners and staff here have a lot of fun and it’s a great atmosphere to work in. The role requires a lot of flexibility, but I love the variety, and especially the times when we celebrate the achievements of our learners."
