‘I am excited by the possibilities of the future’

Amanda Price started her career journey at Novus as an Administrator and has progressed to become a Peer Mentor Tutor based at HMP Onley.

“When I joined Novus it was my first full-time admin position since raising my six children.  I was nervous about re-entering the work place, my admin skills were not the best and I lacked confidence. However, the admin team really supported me and provided full training.  The support I received helped me to work around raising my family, I was offered job share and flexible hours.

“My manager encouraged me from day one to stretch and challenge myself, I was made to feel welcome and encouraged to ask questions or seek help if needed. I was promoted to Admin Manager, a position I really enjoyed, it was challenging and rewarding and I felt that my hard work had been recognised by the organisation.

“I developed an interest in teaching and asked my manager how I would go about becoming a teacher - it turned out to be the best question that I ever asked! I started my training and shadowed other tutors. I learned so much from the other members of staff, I was guided, advised and mentored by several colleagues.

“I am now a Peer Mentoring Tutor and have enrolled to start the BA in Education in September. My future goals at the minute are to work towards becoming an advanced practitioner. I am excited at the possibilities of the future and grateful for all the support and encouragement that I have received here at HMP Onley.”
