Student Social Worker (former Apprentice)
Naomi experienced the care system first hand growing up in foster care and wanted to use her experiences to help other young people in similar situations.
While working for her local council’s finance department, the apprenticeship provided Naomi with the perfect opportunity to begin a career in social care while crucially allowing her to continue to earn a wage.
The qualification Naomi gained from her apprenticeship gave her the additional UCAS points she required to apply for an undergraduate place at University of South Wales where she is now a third year Student Social Worker.
