Joanne is a single Mum returning to the workforce after taking 6 years off to raise her child. She completed her CHC30213 Certificate III in Education Support with Djerriwarrh in 2019 and is now working as a relief Education Support Worker.
Joanne is friendly and has a big smile when I meet her. She said she decided to do this course because she loved the idea of studying within the education system and working in a school setting. The best part of the course for her was meeting lovely women from all different walks of life. She also enjoyed sharing life stories and situations with each other. According to Joanne, the support through the course was amazing.
When I asked Joanne what the best part of her work was she said straight away, ‘Knowing that I’ve helped and showed patience with students in need of help.’
