This really is such a great workplace. When I get a new student group, I’m always interested in their background stories, like ‘Why are they here now?’ There’s so much diversity in their stories. I feel like I’m the learner. I hear their nervousness about being able to get through the course. I feel proud that they get to learn about disability support from me, as someone who needs good support every day. That’s the best part. We work together as a professional partnership to achieve their goal. Once they get to practice their skills out in the workplaces, the feedback we receive is positive and I always get good comments from my students about the fact of having a lecturer with a disability. It certainly helps them feel more comfortable about working in the disability sector. I am able to give them feedback, additional skills and confidence in order to empower them so they can empower the people they support.
