Private HomeCare’s Annual Graduation ceremony for our QQI professional home care assistants took place on May 27th 2022.
Whilst we are proud of every single graduate, some had unique stories of the challenges they faced on their journey. Here, Sam shares her experience of studying with dyslexia.
Please note Sam’s talk is in bullet format which Private HomeCare scribed following an interview with her to prepare for the graduation. Sam explained bullet format is easier for people with dyslexia to absorb. These are Sam’s words.
MY LONG TERM GOAL
STUDYING FOR THIS QUALIFICATION
I am looking forward to starting a degree course. Thankfully there are more resources in education for people with dyslexia. I know more too. I can go up to a teach and ask them to explain things to me.
I WOULD ADVISE OTHERS WITH CHALLENGES TO CONSIDER STUDYING
We greatly admire Sam’s tenacity and success in gaining her qualifications, through our inhouse training department.
Sam also commented that working with Private HomeCare gives people the opportunity to study at the same time, which might not be possible in other jobs which are not so flexible.
Congratulations to Sam and her classmates on achieving their national QQI qualifications – and whilst working too!
