I accepted a TA3 role at Linton School in April 2019, and it was the best thing I ever did, not just from a career, but also a personal prospective.
The whole school team have an equal mindset to work collectively to reach the best possible outcomes for our young people. I am treated with respect and regard, particularly from Senior Leadership Team who treat staff equally and humanely. The working environment is safe and ensures positive mental health for all. This is also evident when support for staff is also needed outside of the job role.
My career has blossomed since joining, going from a TA3 to a HLTA and with friendly encouragement and sincere enthusiasm from Rebekah, Sean and the staff team, this has allowed me to achieve my Diploma in Education and Training.
Next steps are commencing my QTLS in January, and completing the Lowland Leadership Qualification, to support our young people to achieve the Duke of Edinburgh award.
The vision and ethos of Linton School is also person centred to colleagues.
I am truly thankful and appreciative of everything Linton school achieves for our young people and staff.
I am very proud to work here and be a part of the Linton family.
