I believe that I am asuitable candidate for this role as I have a passion for working in childcareas well as the creative arts, which will be beneficial for the role ofplayworker. I have previously worked as a teaching assistant in a school with arange of different ages of children, supervised during clubs, lunchtimes andplaytimes as well as in the classroom. Through these experiences, I have gaineda lot of skills in working with children and creating a safe, fun learningenvironment. I have recently completeda Level 3 Diploma in Creative Media Production which I believe will be verybeneficial towards the role of playworker as I have a lot of creative ideas foractivities which can be implemented during club activities.
I am also a veryenthusiastic person, I am up for anything and will get stuck in when it comesto playing and teaching games with children. During my role as aTeaching Assistant at St Paul’s Way Trust School, I was part of the lunchtimesupervisors, where I had to make sure they are eating sensibly, playindoor/outdoor games with them and are always where they are supposed to be. Ialso supported children during class lessons and playtimes, making sure thatchildren are behaving in the playground, sorting out any problems and playinggames with them.
Most of my role was toassist children in the classroom. I supervised the children in the playground,assisted them with any help they needed and supported SEN children with anydifficulties and ensured that the children were in a safe, happy and funlearning environment. I think that because of my experience, I am able tosuccessfully follow through the job description for playworker at WalkerPrimary.I have gained anEmergency Life Assistant Training certificate which is a very important skillto have when working in a childcare environment. In the future, I wouldlike to gain a creative degree so that I can go onto teaching children inschools. I believe that an opportunity like this role as a playworker willenable me to learn more skills and expertise to implement in my future career.
