Mentor: Baroness Doreen Massey, Labour Peer in the House of Lords and member of the Parliamentary Delegation to the Council of Europe

Why ALMP? During my degree I developed a specialised interest in Health and Social care which is both my biggest passion and my biggest problem.  It is this issue of attempting to find my place in such a diverse sector that led me to applying for this program. To understand more about the different opportunities for Social Workers in Health and Social Care (particularly in Charities and Hospitals). To have guidance in applying to different Government fast track schemes (Step up to Social Work, Think Ahead and Frontline) as well as the Master’s program at the University of Birmingham. To review the reflective thinking in social work practice that I have done whilst being in South Africa.
