“There are no other placements like it,where you have all the trainers in one place. Here you benefit from a variety of different practice educators, including three senior staff, a newly-qualified worker and a senior support worker,who offer a range of perspectives in case management.”

Supporting local authorities 

In today’s austerity, there isn’t enough social care available to those who need it. Government cutbacks and budget restraints have meant that a lot of agencies across the country have closed or withdrawn their services.

The SWEET project is able to fill this gap. It can benefit those who need support. We pick up child protection plans and children in need plans. We can support vulnerable adults who have no other forms of support.

We have increased our service delivery and are able to work with local councils to offer statutory tasks that students can undertake, such as single/family assessments and the provision of life story work.

The difference between…

  • Student feedback received to date has been very positive. The practice placement at SWEET has been described as “excellent” due to the complexity of work that has been undertaken, which enabled one student “to learn and develop confidence”.
