I have worked in education recruitment for 10 years, as a Sales Manager and now a Managing Director. Previously, I was a teaching assistant in SEND schools.
I have two brothers that have SEND needs (ASD and challenging behaviour) and have helped guide them to further education by supporting them throughout their schooling. I have an excellent understanding of SEMH schools and have worked as a mentor and Football coach in these provisions.
I therefore know the types of characters that can inspire young people with SEND needs to achieve their full potential.
