Testimonials

What is unique about being a SW is how it is so people-oriented; the relationships formed with both the residents and the staff who work alongside you are hands down the best part of the role. I encourage anyone who is thinking about being a SW to give it a go – you won’t regret it!
Marianne (SW 2020)

Being a SW is a rewarding learning experience that challenges you to grow and adapt as an individual … It is a great way to develop yourself as a well-rounded individual whilst having a super enjoyable year!
Hannah (SW 2020)

There is rarely a dull moment in this job. From organising sporting and cultural events, to delivering world-leading pastoral care to residents in need - the variety of work is vast.
Duncan (SW 2019 and 2020)

Being a SW has been the best personal development opportunity I've ever had, and I definitely don't see it as 'work'. The term pastoral care is so varied, and you get the chance to help so many people- who often need your support for very different reasons. Seeing the residents thrive academically and socially in their home away from home makes everything we do as a team so worthwhile.
Yvonne (SW 2020)
