Youngsters Train Social Workers!

Three Children in Care Council (CiCC) members attended The University of Kent today
to teach 3rd Year Social Work students.

SW trainingThe CiCC members kicked the session off with a presentation of their short film ‘Tackling Stigma’ followed by an exercise based on the CiCC Top 10 Qualities poster.

The students were very keen to hear about Tiff, Paddy and Daniel’s experiences of being looked after by Medway, particularly relating to their relationships with their social workers.

Professor of Social Gerontology and Social Work, Dr Alison Milne, said,Thank you very much for coming along today and speaking so helpfully and clearly to our BA Social Work students. We all found it a powerful and informative session. We look forward to continuing to work with you in the future.”

Paddy said, “It was a bit daunting at first I have never spoken in front of that many people but I felt really proud of myself afterwards.” 

Well done to the CiCC members who took part today and good luck to the student social workers at the University of Kent!
