Finding her dream job
For the children at Lucknow Primary School, where APM helped Tansy find her dream job of working in a library, Tansy was the indispensable, friendly guide to every entertaining and educational book waiting for them.
"My favourite thing about coming to work is being able to interact with the students and parting knowledge of how to use a library,” Tansy said.
Like APM, the children and teachers at the school saw Tansy for the person she is.
Tansy told her APM employment consultant her dream was to work in a library, and after a six-month trial as a technician, the school were not going to let her go.
“I really put my all in those six months. I got called into the office and they basically said they are going to keep me. And I knew I was having a job so that was brilliant,” Tansy said.
More than just a job
Building on the success in her role as a library technician, Tansy is now training to become a teacher herself, with the support from the school and APM to help her achieve a teaching degree.
“APM listened to me, they actually understood that I did have these hopes and dreams that I wanted to fulfil because everybody else gets the right to, so why shouldn’t someone with a disability have those same wants, dreams and hopes,” Tansy added.
