Earlier this year PDDCS member, Calum, undertook a 2 week placement. He worked in the role of a Teaching Assistant in a mainstream primary, William Hildyard Cof E. Within days, Calum no longer required communication support as he and the school worked together to overcome communication barriers.
Tonight Calum was awarded in the ‘Outstanding’ category for the Work Placement Presentation Evening at Jack Hunt School.
To quote the teacher:
“Calum is a very enthusiastic, friendly and helpful student. He always went above and beyond in everything I asked of him.
His mature, considerate and conscientious attitude meant he was a complete ‘hit’ with the kids. Sad to see him go, he’s welcome back anytime. He would make a wonderful teacher. I wish him well for the future. Good luck – go for it Calum!”
Well done Calum!!
