‘I must admit when I started this course I was not sure if it was going to be for me, but now I could not imagine doing anything else. I have learned so much, not just about supporting children and teachers but also how to develop my skills more. I have enjoyed this course and it has helped me realise how much I want to help children in a positive way. I am grateful to the Adult Learning Services for these life changing services they run enabling us adults to better ourselves for working opportunities. I have already enrolled in one of the distance learning courses and have set my goal to be completed in 4 weeks so I can start the next one over the summer holidays and am very interested in doing the Autism course in September. I will be continuously educating myself where I can to develop ways to help children’.
