i have had two interviews so far one for london met and the other greenwhich uni. i have had a moc interview through my college and although it was helpful i feel abit
as im being told different things from diff people within the college. just any help with social work interviews and the process in general and if you hav any specific relevance to the uni's i stated would b most helpful. especially anyone who has been through them within the last three years. :thanx
here are a few questions they asked me in my individual interview. there were 7 in total but can just remember these.
1.have u ever witnessed or seen oppression or discrimination...what did u do and how did u deal with it.
2.what do social worker do?
3.what skills would you bring from your previous studies to the social work study?
4.what skills would u bring from ur experiences (work, personal, voluntary).
5.what are the advantages and disadvantages of using personal experiences in to ur practice?
in the written exercise they asked...why do u want to be a social worker and what skills and experiences would u bring.
the group exercise is observed. u are given a statement to discuss within ur group. my was...how does media exposure on cases like baby peter effect social work practice?
