Hannah Jones is the placement co-ordinator for the Youth and Community degree programme, and also teaches on the course. A qualified youth worker since 2001, she has worked for various local authorities in different roles, including working with young carers and as a schools-based youth worker delivering alternative curriculum provisions.
"A third of USW's youth course is practice based," says Hannah. "This means you have hands-on experience of working with young people. You also have a professional supervisor to offer you guidance on a one -to-one basis.
Placements are an amazing opportunity for you to build networks in the professional world."
