Great place to work very rewarding.
Support Worker (Former Employee) –  Cork24 April 2016
I worked in the Cork Life Centre as part of my final year college placement for three months. I can honestly say it was the best experience of my college placements.

The staff were incredibly helpful and understanding, the work they do is second to none and majority of the work is on a voluntary and public funded basis, The Life Centre relies on the donations of a variety of charities around Cork City County.

During my time in the Life Centre in Cork I worked with a number of students on a one-one basis teaching them a variety of subjects from History, English, Maths, Computers, CSPE etc. These students left mainstream education for a variety of reasons, educational disadvantage, personal/family problems, learning difficulties etc.

I found the work incredibly rewarding and loved working with each student individually, learning about their background and how best to help them get through whatever issue they were experiencing. Helping them to gain an education and sit their exams even when mainstream education failed them.
Pros
Working with students one-one, getting to know each student on an individual basis, incredibly rewarding
Cons
Can be challenging in a number of ways, difficult to see some f the situations these students are facing in their lives
