Social Work Students 2019-20
Social Work Students from the University of East London have started their ‘Advocacy Pathway’ placement at Charlton Park Academy, as part of their ‘Readiness for Practice’ module. Over the next 6 months they will be working closely with the Young People from Euston Class, learning about them, their communication skills and supporting them to develop their multimedia self-advocacy skills and record their dreams and wishes on their individual Wikis.
This programme is extremely valuable not only to the Young People but also to Social Work students. Through this programme, they have a unique opportunity to learn new skills that will help them to understand the value of person-person centred practice, the importance of working in partnerships with families, involving the Young People and communicating with them effectively.
Social Work students’ feedback from previous years was always overwhelming, they have learnt much more than they could ever have learnt from textbooks or lectures.
We are welcoming another group of social work students into our school to work with KS3 young people for the next two terms. To introduce themselves the social work students shared objects personal to them and their #RixWiki with our young people. #DayOne pic.twitter.com/35kgrm2xlg
