A Students Feedback- July 2014

I have a lot of wonderful memories to take with me from my time on placement


"I do not know where to start from. It's my first day away from Headway and I am already missing the place and the wonderful people that I have been working with for the last 70days.


I am not very good at saying goodbye and I will not be saying goodbye as I will forever be part of the Headway East Northants Family.


I have a lot of wonderful memories to take with me from my time on placement. The ones that I will forever cherish is my direct observation sessions clients and the many lunch time conversations we had. It was emotional at times but now I look back with a smile and feel proud and honoured to have worked with these wonderful people who opened up to me and shared their experiences.


It would be unfair to single out one particular member of staff for you have all contributed to my learning for the last 70days. Just sitting during all sessions and watching Ian leading the group was just priceless it taught me a lot that no one will ever do . Mark's contribution to clients college achievements are a true reflection of what people can achieve with the right support. Observing Amber not only doing her work but being good at what she does gave me the passion to work hard and being good even in all the little things that I am assigned to do. The relationship that both Stuart and Michelle have with clients and their patience despite being asked to go through the tasks over and over again only left me saying to myself "I wish I can be like them".  The work that Freyja does with all the clients and her passion in art is just amazing.  


Dawn and Sue have both supported me throughout my placement. Their support, guidance and the words said at the right time when I was feeling the pressure kept me motivated and focused.


It has been a wonderful 70days and I have enjoyed it. I will always be part of the Headway East Northants team as a volunteer.  


Convey my warmest regards and sincere gratitude to all the clients and staff members.


“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”
Nelson Mandela


Thank you"
