How long have you
been with us?

Years

What are your hobbies and interests?

I love playing sports, especially football. I even have a Football Coaching qualification.

Do you have another job or responsibility that runs alongside your role at Class Of Their Own?

Yes! I am a Teaching Assistant in a Primary School in the daytime and I also volunteer with East Sussex Fire and Rescue.

What makes you stay at Class Of Their Own?

A fantastic team of people! The colleagues that I work with are so much fun and make the session enjoyable for everyone. The children that I get to meet are also fantastic, it’s great to get to know their personalities and watch them develop and grow over the year.

How have you changed/developed since being at Class Of Their Own?

I joined Class Of Their Own as a Play Leader with hardly any experience and loved it instantly. It’s such a fun way to spend an afternoon and you get paid for it! Over the years I’ve gained so much confidence in my ability to work with children and I was supported to progress firstly to an Assistant Club Co-ordinator role and then onto running my own Club as a Club Co-ordinator. Class Of Their Own have a fantastic training programme that has helped me to gain nationally recognised qualifications in Playwork as well as providing training in many other areas to help my professional development.

What is your favourite part of the job and why?

I love the fact that every day is different. Working with children you never know what you expect and no matter how long you’ve been working with them you can never predict what they’re going to say! I also love that my work with children has a positive impact and you can see at home time how much fun they’ve had as they often don’t want to leave!

What do we look for in a
Play Leader?

A Play Leader is responsible for supporting the day to day activities in the Club and ensuring the children are given opportunities to play freely or engage in organised activities. Time at our clubs is the children’s free/leisure time and the activities that you set up for the children will be child-led and influenced by the children's likes and dislikes. Your aim for the day is to use your skills and experience to ensure the children enjoy their time with us.
