Hi guys, applying to Leeds Beckett, University of Bradford and Huddersfield for MA Social Work. I am a Working with Children, Young People and Families Graduate. I have taken this year out after graduating in 2017 to get some relevant work experience.
I volunteer in 3 settings- A people referral unit with disengaged children who don't fit into mainstream school for various reasons. The children I have met here have very complex needs and have had very difficult starts to their lives. I also volunteer as a mental health group facilitator and volunteer in a befriending role with refugees and asylum seekers.
I was wondering if there is any advice you guys can give me regarding the written interview and group discussion on the interview days. I also think I am doing too much in terms of my preparing for the individual interview. Is there anything in particular I should keep my focus on?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
