Position: Training Co-ordinator
Topic: (Career Progression)
I was employed at the end of 2012 as an Occupational Therapist and Clinical Coordinator for one of our residential services for people with brain injury. Within this role I was supported with regular supervision, and opportunities to engage in professional development; both internally and externally.
The opportunity for professional growth within the company has truly extended beyond my expectations. I am now employed as the Training Coordinator, and have been responsible for the development and implementation of NZQA qualifications (Certificate in Health and Wellbeing, for Brain Injury Support & Mental Health and Addiction). I have supported over 70 staff internally through this qualification, and am now delivering training and assessing staff from other organisations. I regularly travel to locations around the North Island to support staff, and recently had an all expenses trip to Wellington for two nights to attend a conference and awards ceremony.
Goodwood Park Healthcare has been amazingly supportive with flexibility around maternity leave, and allowing me to return to work in a part time capacity. I feel lucky to work with an amazing group of people, and for a company with true family values.
