Candidate of the Term Summer 2019: Winners

Who are the winners of the Axcis Candidate of the Term Summer 2019 awards? And what did they do to go above and beyond the call of duty for the schools they are working in?

The Nominees

We had lots of lovely nominations from the schools we work with. These were all published on our blog for anyone who missed them. Selecting winners wasn’t easy, and all nominees received a certificate of appreciation for the hard work they do, but after much deliberation, winners were selected…

And the winners are…

Oliver – working for Louise (Axcis London)

Reason for nomination:
We’ like to nominate Oliver for the following reasons: He is personable – instantly liked by students and staff. He is proactive, a good communicator and a team player. He is sensitive to the importance of preserving the dignity and well-being of students with physical disabilities who need intimate care. He does not take himself too seriously and has a sense of humor while respecting the responsibilities of the role. He is willing and hardworking, and he puts our young people first

What Oliver says about winning:

Oliver – Axcis Summer 2019 Candidate of the Term Winner

It was a pleasure to be nominated and win the award for this academic term. I’ve had an immense amount of support from both Axcis Education and the school (Julia and the team have been wonderful) and am looking forward to starting the next academic year in September.

Diana, working for Laurence (Axcis South West)

Reason for nomination:
She truly is brilliant.  Diana settled in immediately, using her initiative and being proactive in supporting the children.  She doesn’t wait to be asked or given permission, she naturally uses her intuition to meet the children where they are and gently encourage them .  She has a natural way with our most vulnerable learners, making them feel safe and cared for.  The children warmed to her instantly and look forward to her being in class.  Diana has made all the difference to one of our CiC offering her stability and predictability in this somewhat chaotic time in her life. I am very thankful for this.  No task is too big for Diana.  She has so much knowledge and experience she leaves the team in awe! On top of all this she has the most radiant smile which lifts everyone’s spirits and makes us feel as though anything is possible, which is definitely needed at this time of year.  She is total amazeballs!

Diana (middle) – Axcis Summer 2019 Candidate of the Term Winner

What Diana says about winning:

I’m really surprised but honoured to work in such a welcoming and nurturing school. the support offered is unconditional and the children are fantastic.

The school added:
Diana has done a fantastic job working on a 1:1 basis with our child. She thoroughly deserves the award

Stuart – Working for Tamsin (Axcis Devon & Cornwall)

Reason for nomination:
Since beginning at WESC on a five day temporary term (second half of the summer term), he has quickly gained a reputation as a highly skilled, knowledgeable and positive colleague who is student focused in all he does.   He has met the challenges involved in taking on a complex group of students and had galvanised a disparate group of staff to create an effective and purposeful learning environment. Had we been able to offer Him a permanent role, I would have done so without hesitation.  I am happy to give more information if required.
