    So I've just taken a gap year and really want to go in to Social work. I got the grades that I needed to get into the course however the interviews let me down big time. I really want to get loads of experience related to my course so it helps my interview next year. Anyone know what kind of setting would be beneficial to volunteer in for the social work degree?
    Any suggestions would much appreciated, thank youuu.

    Hi, i have been looking into this myself and although I work in the correct environment (for a mental health team) i have been told by admissions that the experience i need has to be more hands on such as support worker or a social work assistant. Its very difficult to actually get this though :/
