Social Work Students

What about travel costs and expenses?

Generally speaking, we would expect student social workers to be able to drive, and to have access to a car for the duration of their placements – but you can check this requirement out during the Learning Agreement Meeting. Students will be expected to pay travel expenses to and from the placement. Some agencies do pay travel expenses, but not all and there may be an expectation that students will undertake home visits, visits to other teams and attend meetings.  Students are required to have Business use on their car insurance.  Travel costs and expenses while on placement will be discussed at the Learning Agreement Meeting.
