I'm going to start an Access to Social work course soon so I can commence my study in September 2014. I have researched Universities and I think I would like to study at either Birmingham City, Lincoln, Hull, Brighton or Nottingham/Nottingham Trent. I have in the past done some overseas volunteering in a social work capacity but I am struggling to find places in the UK to gain experience. When I finish my degree I want to work in either Child protection or within an Adoption/Foster Agency so I have been looking for experience with young people.
Does anybody have any tips or suggestions on how to boost my work experience?
