i am very excited. an opportunity has come up for me to do a work experience placement as part of one of the modules here at the ILS course. one of the modules is career preparation. and i got asked where i’d like to go on work experience, the tutor couldnt promise me i’d get to go where i wanted, but she said she’d like an idea from me of where that might be. so i’ve always wanted to work at child vision, which is a preschool here where i live for children with visual impairments and other disabilities. and so i told her i’d love to go there. she rang them and they said they’d love to have me work there one day a week. its pretty far away from here, like if i was getting a taxi it would cost me 30 euro or best part of it. but the tutor said the bus that brings people in and out to the day centre here might be able to take me one way. she said let her talk to the guys who drive and get back to me. so she did, and today she told me that if we could organise it for mondays, after my therapy appointment, and i’d get the taxi to drop me to the preschool instead of to abode, and then the bus could pick me up at the end of the day. or course all this has to be run by the big boss first, and i am hopeful she’ll agree to it, otherwise i’m not going to be able to do it. she hopefully will say yes. the thing is if the bus is going to drop me back to abode in the evening, they’ll need to put a third driver on the road, just to get me, because there is no room on the bigger bus, but they do have a smaller van that one person can travel in. so please guys, keep everything crossed for me that this works out!
