SWAY offers work experience and student placement opportunities for young people who are studying at college or university in the related area of Youth Work. Students will be given the opportunity to gain a practical experience of youth work within a variety of settings. This opportunity will support the student in being able to better understand the connection between theory and the professional practice of youth work.
This includes the opportunity to engage in face to face contact, planning and preparation of sessions, staff meetings and regular supervision and feedback on the student’s performance. This offers the student a different perspective of youth work in practice. Supervision of the student will provide challenging opportunities that will assist in the development of the student as a professional practitioner.
