Social Work Students

What about placements in the voluntary sector?

Some students aren't sure about taking on a placement within the voluntary sector, but this kind of experience can be really useful in developing your skills, your knowledge, and your confidence. It also gives you an opportunity to work outside of a local authority setting, and gain a clearer understanding of the types of work undertaken by voluntary organisations, the challenges they face, and the value of what they do within their communities. We asked three students to tell us about their experience of placements within voluntary organisations, and you can listen to them talk about this here.
