I am an experienced social worker/socialwork manager with seven years post qualifying experience of front line social work practise of child protection and looked after children. Prior to my social work training I had worked within residential childcare with adolescent young people, it was here that I learnt a lot about working with vulnerable challenging young people . Prior to this I completed many temporary jobs moving from working with adults in residential care to adults with learning disabilities in an adult education setting.
