Feedback from previous Student Social Workers

Jasmine Bolding - Student Social Worker 

When I found out that I was going to be doing my placement within a school, I was hesitant as I didn't want to be working within classrooms. However, that soon changed. Working within St Marys has helped me to gain a wealth of experience that I never thought I would be able to gain within a school setting. It has been great seeing things from a pastoral point of view, as I never realised how things operate behind the scenes at a school. The team are very supportive and have helped me gain a better understanding of the different aspects that make up social work. One word of adviceis don't judge a book by its cover and make the most of the opportunities.
