    Well thanks to you Restless, I have taken and passed The Complete SEND (level 2,3&4) diploma.
    The New Skills Academy course costs £100 but with your 65% discount code, it only cost me £35! 😊
    In December I sent my CV in to our local secondary school where my son attends and was thrilled to be called in for an interview and offered a position as Nurture Assistant. At 55, I felt extremely lucky. I started in January but then lockdown began on 21st March and being so new, I really thought I’d lose my wonderful new job. With fingers and toes crossed, I continued to receive my salary, so I thought the best way I could give back was to use my time to further develop my knowledge and understanding of SEND so that when we fully return to school in September, I can give my very best to the students I help care for. Thank you Restless. 😊
