“I find the staff very supportive, almost like a family. I loved my placement in Mental Health, it was great to work with people in the community”

Social Work Placements & Professional Links
Placements allow students to build on the skills they have developed while studying and use them in a real world situation.
The benefits for both employers and students are huge; students learn from working alongside professionals and employers benefit from a resource with valuable skills, knowledge and fresh ideas.
Documentation forms an integral part of our placement processes and experience.
Placements are an important part of many of our courses.
All Social Work students must spend time in supervised direct practice.
We have strong links with professional organisations
