Tayla - Nurturing confidence leads to job in chosen career
‘It took Tayla a while to find the job that she wanted in childcare. It was looking like it wasn’t going to happen, but it’s turned out perfectly for her,’ says Tayla’s mother, Karen. She’s convinced that Tayla found work in her chosen career because NOVA nurtured her confidence and pride in every achievement along the way.
Karen and Tayla tried other employment services, but only received the support that they hoped for and needed through NOVA Transition. ‘Apart from improving Tayla’s confidence, NOVA also gave her a sense of purpose,’ Karen says. ‘She knew what she wanted and she was headed in that direction. And she made it! She’s worked very, very hard.’
For Tayla, starting a career that she loves means she enjoys every aspect of her work, including games, puzzles, painting, Play-Doh, High Five, The Wiggles, everything! She even gets into the copious amount of cleaning required of an early-childhood childcare worker.
The best aspects of NOVA Transition for Tayla were making friends and being encouraged to identify and pursue her dreams. To learn more about Tayla’s experience, watch this interview from her graduation day.
