The Final Day

So I have completed my 90 hours of placement here with Cartwheel Arts! it has been a good experience of which I have learnt so much from. The most important thing I have learnt is to never let personal issues impact the outcome of your abilities, always push yourself further than you feel you can go and keep going because when you look back you will be so thankful.

I have come here to gain skills and experience in the social care field to help benefit my social care degree which I am working towards. I have met so many wonderful people who have helped me along the way, and I hope to keep coming along to all the different upcoming events through summer.

Today was my exiting interview with Gala, we went over all of my achievements over the time I have spent here, going over my weak areas, strong areas and how I have developed and improved along the way. I feel like I have come out a lot stronger, happier and focussed. I have found a balance within myself through the challenges I have faced here, and completed them even though sometimes I struggled.

So I would like to thank everyone I have worked with here at Cartwheel Arts for making me feel so welcome, and guiding me through my tasks. I have really appreciated all of the support and I hope to see everyone again through summer at the Darnhill Festival. I have almost finished my second year at university now, and I plan to move to Manchester over summer and see what my future has to offer me out there! 🙂

I hope you have enjoyed reading through my journey.

All the best 🙂

Wednesday the 4th & Tuesday the 19th of April

I have spent a lot of time finishing off the members/ none-members survery over the last 2 full days of being here. I have arrived on both days and phoned up members of Cartwheel arts asking them to fill out a members survey (2015). This is to purely benefit the organisation, and improve areas which need improving on. By doing this we are asking people for their help in understanding what these areas are. I have successfully managed to gradually get through an number of members, but due to inconvenient times it has held me up on completeing the set task.

I have become more confident in using the phone throughout doing this task, and i have also gained extra skills in using different types of software on the computer. I have done this through collecting the information from the surveys and applying it into exel format. I have really enjoyed the conversations with different people, and through this i have become happier with my performance.

Today i am proceeding with the phone calls/ emails to try and complete as many surveys as i can. I am also updating my blog as you can see. Today is a lovely sunny day, and i feel motivated and happy!
