- Personal statement
Having completed a Social Work Degree on the BASW course at Teesside University I am able to relate to client groups from various backgrounds, during the course I completed three work placements within social care settings. Enduring the experience of overcoming my own ill health which was long term (2010-2016) by means of my own determination, I am now able to take on new challenges and commitments. I had the experience of employing my own PA's, in doing so I have net-worked with other agencies, I had the experience of managing rota's, wages, direct payments, financial budgeting records and employees insurance which kept me active in meeting deadlines. I also set up a website for chronic pain sufferers which has had a great response and is currently on going. I am able to work individually as well as part of a team and enjoy new challenges, I am willing to do further training to enhance my own knowledge and skills.
