I am the Branch Manager of Dorset SEN; I have worked with Teaching Personnel since April 2013 within the SEN sector of education recruitment. Prior to joining Teaching Personnel as a consultant I worked in schools as a Teaching Assistant. I previously worked in the Portsmouth and Southampton areas within SEN schools and pupil referral units. I also provide Team Teach training for Teaching Personnel candidates; this is a holistic behaviour management course.
Throughout my time at Teaching Personnel I have very much enjoyed meeting and recruiting candidates and helping them find the new career they are looking for. I find it very rewarding helping our Behavioural and SEN schools find the right staff to support the challenges their young people face on a daily basis. I particularly enjoy supporting Virtual Schools to provide tuition for looked after young people.
My greatest moment at Teaching Personnel was achieving my promotion to Branch Manager and being able to create the Dorset SEN branch; this is something I had worked towards for a long time.
In my spare time I enjoy dancing, I have recently started to learn Tap after many years of enjoying Ballroom, Latin and Irish Dancing.
My branch currently consists of three consultants, Louis is our newest team member and has a background in support work with young people with behavioural difficulties and special educational needs. Liv has been working with Teaching Personnel for over a year and covers our SEN schools. Louis and I cover SEMH Schools and Pupil Referral Units across Dorset.
We look forward to working with you.
