Social Work Interview - Portsmouth - Case Study!Watch this thread
I apologise for the second post relating to social work interviews!
I have just received my interview date and pack for Social Work at Portsmouth and was wondering if any one else has an interview at Portsmouth next month too and what you made of the case study given for us to write a brief summary on?
I am really at a loss as to what they are expecting from me in regards to the case study, do I need to write pages a pages or just a paragraph or two? And should I try and do some research or just go with my gut instinct?
Another question, what on earth to wear? Business or Jeans and a smart top and cardigan?
Also if any one else is currently doing Social Work and has any inside info or advice about what to expect at the interview I would really really appreciate it!
Is your interview individual or group? Either way they will want to see that have appropriate communication skills, and demonstrating knowledge about how your experiences relate to social work would also be good.
Www.communitycare.co.uk is a good site for current issues, and the forum is useful as well.
Also, have a look at the Codes of Conduct on www.gscc.org.uk
Go for smart/casual clothes, not jeans. Trousers and a smart top would be fine.
Also have no idea whatsoever about what i'm going to wear :s.
I GOT IN! I just confirmed my unconditional offer! SO EXCITED!
