I will try to make all lessons fun and provide as much help as I can to my students. I will also provide students with books that I make myself that explain the syllabus and link the content of the book very closely to the mark scheme.

Charity is of huge interest to me and I have a passion for helping refugees. In particular I have lots of experience working with child refugees.
• Refugee support officer - Within my role as a Refugee Counsellor and support officer my main duties involved providing as much emotional support as I could to adults, children and teenagers that had just arrived in the UK. My other roles included working as an advocate for asylum seekers who were applying for refugee status and once this status was gained I spent my time contacting housing agencies, schools, as well as sign posting individuals to mental health services and charities where needed. Whilst working as a refugee support officer I was given extensive training in safe guarding, working with those with disabilities, working with children and adults who had experienced extreme trauma and how to spot incidences of trafficking.
• Intern at Amy Winehouse Foundation - I worked as an intern for Amy Winehouse foundation over the summer of last year. This charity focuses on children who have been affected by the addictions of their parents or those who have faced addiction themselves. They provide counselling services for the children as well as involving them in a programme that gets them to focus on creating and producing their own music. They also have a half-way house used for those who have just recently left rehab but aren’t ready to go into the ‘real world’ yet. Within this internship I also learnt about the management of charities such as the importance of the preparation for effective data protection compliance relating to sensitive personal data associated with client management.
• Intern at Centre Forum - I interned for a leading political think where I worked on their mental health commission ‘There Can Be No Health without Mental Health’ and participated in research regarding the current state of mental health care provision in England. This helped me understand the importance of mental health reform, especially for child mental health services, that is needed in the UK.
• Volunteer Relief Worker - My role as a volunteer relief worker in the Calais Refugee Camp was to provide the refugees with food, shelter and warm clothes. Alongside this, I worked with the children in an attempt to inject their lives with some fun and happiness. This was often difficult as most of the children had been robbed of their childhood by war and had grown up in extremely underdeveloped, violent and insecure environments. As a result of this these children had lost their trust in others and were often anxious, depressed or rebellious. This taught me a lot about working with more complex children who may respond differently to those who had not experienced extreme trauma.
