I was offered a job in the second year of the course!
About my job
I came to Stepping Stones on my first placement of the course and enjoyed it so much, I decided to do my second placement here. They obviously liked me too because they offered me a job!
I am working here part time whilst studying, and will join as a full time member of staff when I graduate.
My role is to help young people make positive changes in their lives by supporting them to make informed choices as and promote their independence for when they leave care
I really enjoy seeing the work and effort I put in have a positive influence on the young people, it's a great feeling.
About the course
I chose the Health and Social Care Management degree as I saw the potential to develop myself as a health and social care practitioner and hopefully one day, a health and social care manager.
The course overview seemed to offer a wide variety of modules which I knew would be of a benefit to my career plans.
I honestly love the course, the lecturers are great and the learning material is all useful and interesting. The campus is welcoming and it’s a great learning environment.
The opportunity of placements should be taken very seriously as, like me, you could easily get a job out of it.
It’s your chance to show your passion, dedication and hard work to the placement employer.
My career ambition is to be a manager of a health and social care setting and play a major role in helping people change their lives for the better, that's why I'm doing the health and social care management course.
Alongside my degree, I am hoping to complete my QCFs with Stepping Stones, so I am excited about what the future could hold.
