Laura Blackett | University of Sunderland

Social Work BA (Hons)

First Placement


Apologies for my quietness of late, I have been sunning it up in Mexico with limited WIFI! Back to reality and the cold British Summer now 🙁

I am currently on placement five days a week and thought I would put together a video for those considering the social work course, or first year students who are about to go into second year in September.

I am enjoying placement so far and it has really shown me I made the right decision in pursuing a social work career. It has helped me so much with understanding the theory and law I have learnt to date seeing everything in practice.

As ever, any questions you have are more than welcome, no question is too silly..

Thank you to Chelsie McNeal for featuring in the video too!
