Sam left Craig y Parc School as a pupil in August 2013. Upon leaving school, he continued his education at Bridgend College as a residential student. During his first year at the college, he undertook a Work Skills course, and then, overcoming difficult personal circumstance, including health issues and a family bereavement, he completed a Level 1 Diploma in IT over 2 years.
Sam applied for a Learning Support Assistant post at Craig y Parc School, and following a successful interview, he secured a position. Sam has now been working at Craig y Parc for around 18 months alongside Zsuzsa, one of his previous teachers.
Sam is a great example of what can be achieved, and he keen to share his experiences and to mentor students within his new role.
