    Hiya, i've asked before but then i thought of more things that i want to know about, so id really appreciate any help.
    I'm certain that i want to be a social worker when i am older and i'm taking a Health and Social Care Level 3 Extended Diploma in college in September, will this enable me to go onto University on a social work degree?
    Also, do i have to go to University to become a social worker?
    And will there be any chance of me getting any work placements (even if voluntary) because im 16 and i think especially in the aspects of social work, most places won't even look at my CV until i'm a certain age.
    Thanks xx

    As a child i was in social care and it was a very rough environment. I hope you do better than all the ***** that i had as social workers and please don't fall into the trap of child abuse. It is very mean.

    You should email the admissions department of the universities you like the look of and see if they think they would accept you with what you are currently studying (grades providing)
