We thoroughly enjoy working with with Social Work students on their placement, being part of their journey into this important life changing work is a privilege.
Feedback from a Senior Lecturer
"Can I say a massive thank you to you both for giving up so much of your time today to talk with our students about advocacy. It was a really interesting session and I know the students really valued the input. As a university, we can share our knowledge and practice in the classroom, but it really comes to life when students hear from practitioners living and breathing the work. It is such an essential part of their learning and will stand them in such good stead for their next placement and future practice. One of our aims for this module is that we really hope to inspire the students to pursue a career in adult social care, so thank you for really contributing to this! A special thanks also to Hannah and Emma, who so generously shared their experiences with their peers too. It was wonderful to hear the progression they’ve made on placement, and to be achieving so much in such a short time! They both talked with such passion about their work, so thanks to you and your team for both hosting two of our students and giving them a really rich learning opportunity. I hope we can work together again really soon."

"As my final day of placement comes to a close, I would just like to say a MASSIVE thank you to everybody within People First! You have all been super welcoming and supportive in my growth and development and have all contributed to the incredible experience I have had on placement here. I could not have asked for a better place to spend my first Social Work placement and I really look forward to working with you all in the future."
