Job Role: Experienced Social Worker

Year Qualified (as SW): 2017 

Why did you become a social worker?

From an early age I have always enjoyed working with and supporting people. My end goal has always been to support people to make positive changes in their lives.

At the age of 16 I worked in a residential home for adults with learning disabilities and continued this with children for a few years. Since qualifying I have worked in front line Child Protection Teams and the Youth Justice Service which has given me great knowledge within these areas. 

Three tips for our ASYEs:

Always be reflective for future learning and development and never be afraid to ask for help. 

Treat everyone as you would like to be treated. 

Do not forget why you chose to do Social Work
