Amy SVQ’s work
Her SVQ work is about business admin, word documents, banking, answering the phone and taking bookings for example, if somebody phones, she will make sure that the person is booked in for what he/she wished for (e.g. football) and she can check the relevant information that the person requires.
When she is writing, it motivates her that she knows she will finish soon and as quick as she can. She started as a volunteer and then moved on to sessional work, which directed her to one day a week working and after doing an extremely good work moved on to a full time position.
Most of the information that she achieved and presented in her SVQ came from her common sense, she kind of knew the question and most of it was stuff she already knew.
Lorraine gives her stuff to do for next week, prepares her for what she will have to do and makes sure Amy knows what she will be working on the following week.
All her work and writing, also improved her skills on data bases, how to do invoices and banking and how to use Microsoft.
Right now she in working on finishing Level 3, which takes 3 months to do it , if you work quickly, and 9 months for most of the people. After she finishes her SVQ, she hopes that she will pass to the next level, a higher level which will give her more work to do, but also she will be more satisfied and proud of her work because she reached Level 4.
When she started to do the SVQ she felt confident and sure. She also felt the pressure and got stressed when she had a deadline with a lot of work, sometimes work which needed to be finished for the next day.
She is pretty proud that she managed to do the work in 3 months, she was happy and confident when she started it and now she is very pleased that she will finally finish it and go to the next challenging , Level 4.
I’m very happy and pleased that I’ve found out what Amy is doing and how she is enjoying it. It was a pleasure to have a conversation with her and also I’ve found out some interesting things about her work and also her future stuff. I wish her good luck in her career and she should never give up at what she is doing, because she is really good and has the ambition that allows her to be motivated and always to believe in herself and her dreams because, I’m sure she will have a great future.
