She communicates well with children, getting down to their level and clearly has an excellent rapport with them.” The Director was impressed with the skills and attributes of Katie and her fellow Oaklands College students.
Since completing her work experience placement and receiving glowing feedback from the Area Director, Katie has since been offered part-time employment for days in which she is not studying at college.
