Anyone have any tips for my intervoew for social work ive got mine at hull university 😄😄
Think about your experience in relevant fields and what this brought up for you - any challenges, any ethical dilemmas, any prejudices you noticed you had and reflect on this - reflection always includes how you felt and how this could impact your practice.
Research any areas that you are particularly passionate about so you can show your passion - e.g. if you are very passionate about mental health learn a bit about the key legislation - Mental Health Act 1983/2007 and Mental Capacity Act 2005, policy issues - cuts to MH services, impact of increasing poverty on mental health.
Think about some of the ethical dilemmas that are present in social work - how would you manage the power dynamic (e.g. as a social worker you could be making decisions about a vulnerable adult's capacity and making decisions in their best interests), and how you manage some of the tricky parts of practice - e.g. how do you judge a situation effectively, whilst being non-judgemental?
