Experience & Qualifications

Introduction:

Hello,

Thanks for reading my profile. A little bit about me; majority of my work experience is working in the care sector, wether with children and young people or adults, I enjoy all aspects of caring for others.

I am a very outgoing, sports orientated individual. I play as part of a rugby team on a weekly basis and enjoy a wide range of sports including Snowports. I left my childcare job in February for a Gap year, during this time I have travelled some of the world and wanted to complete my year by completing a season in France, doing a job that I love.
Qualifications:

SVQ level 4 - Leadership & Management
SVQ level 3 - Children & Adults
HNC sports coaching & development of sport
Higher (B) Physical Education
Higher (B) Product Design
First Aid trained (yearly)
Food & Hygiene course attended.
Health and safety trained
Child protection level one and two training completed.

The above are my highest and most relevant qualifications.
I studied at a higher level coaching children sports, this included studying child psychology, anatomy and nutrition.
Experience:

For the past 4 years I have worked as a residential child care worker, working with children who have suffered from abuse and in need of therapeutic care. During this time I was the primary care giver for the 4 young people based in my site. I worked independently and as part of a team being responsible for ensuring they are safe, healthy and cared for. I ensured the young people had activity planners in place to encourage fun and learning. I have cared for children ranging between the ages of 6-18 years old in this profession.

Previous to this I have completed over 200 hours of voluntary work with children within my community coaching sports. During this time I was solely responsible for no more than 15 children per class. The ages for these were 3-5years old.

I have experience with the fostering system also, as I have completed respite care on one occasion, caring for two young boys in my own home.

Through family and friends, I have experience caring for young babies and toddlers too.

Reference:

"I had the privilege of working alongside Amber, at Carevisions, for a number of years. She is friendly, outgoing and lots of fun. Due to her commitment and hard work she quickly progressed to the Supervisory Role. As wells as caring for our young people on a day to day basis, Amber also planned and organised activities/events for alll the young people to be involved across the organisation and were extremely successful. I find Amber to be an honest, confident, highly motivated and organised individual, who works in a child centred way. Amber would be an asset to your organisation. "
