  • Our colleague from Vienna's experience of job-shadowing


    From 15th to 16th June 2017 I had the chance to do a short job-shadowing at Chelsea Community Hospital School.

    As a hospital school teacher in Vienna and programme manager of the 10th HOPE (Hospital School Organization of Pedagogues in Europe) Congress in Vienna in May 2016, I’ve dreamed of visiting my British colleagues and participating in their lessons and meetings. Thanks to the open-mindedness of both the teachers and the students I had the chance to enjoy the welcoming atmosphere at two of their hospital school sites.

      I have just read and looked at the article that this image comes from. It is a perfect illustration of the magic that Brian creates with all the children, young people, their families and the staff with whom he encounters.I first saw Brian do this nearly 24 years ago and his magic has never waned in that time. He is wonderful.
