Good Luck wishes at Bryn Deva!

Two Excell Teaching Assistants have secured contracts at Bryn Deva School of Connahs Quay starting in the New Year.

Antony Pitt and Karen Swash have continually been representing Excell at the school since last year and their commitment has been recognised by the school who are keeping them as part of the team.

Karen has been with us since November 2011 and we wish her all the best in her role at Ysgol Bryn Deva. Lyndsay called by to thank Karen for all her hard work and presented her with bottle of bubbly, chocolates and a gift voucher… just in time for Christmas!

Adam too visited Antony at the school to present gift vouchers and say bon voyage on behalf of Excell. Antony will be working with Key Stage 2 pupils and Karen in the Foundation Phase.

Antony has kindly taken the time to provide us with the below testimonial;

Who would have thought agency work could be so good.  Well, I am happy to say that with Excell it has been a great experience from the start.  From my first meeting with the team I was quickly put at ease.  It was clear that Excell could offer unparalleled opportunities and my life was changed for the better.  

At my interview I was met with a smile.  The professional approach of the Excell team was evident.  I arrived with a million questions which were all clearly answered and I left really happy.  

In my first week, I was placed in two different schools.  This could have easily been daunting but with the support from Excell it was both a great experience and opportunity.  Early in my career I was able to see how different schools and different teachers worked.  

Within a short time, I was working a regular five day week.  I learned a range of new skills quickly.  Before long and with thanks to the dedication of the Excell team I was offered a regular five day role with Excell at my present school.  

Excell is really flexible and reliable.  One morning, my regular school unexpectedly closed.  I phoned Excell and they found me another placement that afternoon.  This meant that I didn’t lose any pay and because the second school was close to my regular school, I still had time for dinner!  

I truly believe that working for Excell has been one of the best decisions of my life.  Excell offer many staff benefits such as discounts at big shops and employee of the month awards.  I can confidently recommend Excell to everyone who wants to work within a school setting.
