About my ASYE

I had a protected caseload which was good.

It was stressful, but the social work academy made the difference.

Social Work Academy

The social work academy is a vital part of the organisation, especially for newly qualified social workers. I enjoyed my time at the academy.

It was a learning and safe space to discuss my feelings and work. It provides the extra support that a team can sometimes lack.

Work life balance

 I have a manager who understands that it’s not about numbers, but the needs of the young people I support. I get support from my manager and Advanced Practitioner. I don’t feel overwhelmed and I am able to do the things I enjoy after work.

Why I find my work rewarding

Seeing positive changes in young people and making a difference in their lives is something I find very  rewarding.

Supportive team, great location

There is high support from the team when stable. My working environment and office location is great. It works well for me.
