Belinda - She's a keeper
Belinda’s favourite part of her job at Kid About in St Marys is cooking, but she gets to do all sorts of roles, including cleaning, sweeping, washing up, wiping up, storing things away and sorting books on the shelf. She also enjoys having more money and likes working with the other staff.
One of Belinda’s work experience placements during her training At NOVA Transition St Marys was at a local children’s play centre. Many trainees get jobs through their work placement and this is exactly what happened for Belinda.
When a position came up, the owner of the play centre knew what she was looking for so phoned Belinda’s NOVA employment consultant. Belinda has been at Kid About for five years now, and her boss says she’d love to have more staff like Belinda.
Belinda would recommend NOVA Transition to any school-leavers who want to learn how to find and keep a great job. The main aspects of the program that she enjoyed were picking up more skills such as cooking, learning how to dress properly, and going on excursions.
