Why I want to become a Social Worker
Ever since I was a young boy I have been interested in helping people who have been less fortunate in life.
Living in a area which is effected by poverty, drugs, high crime rates and bad education has motivated me to become a social worker so that I may help the community in improving on the issues I have mentioned and help people live life the best way possible and improve the society and environment they live in.
My chosen career which is to become a social work requires a well established background ,not only in academic achievements but also in relevant work or voluntary experiences which I possess.
I have worked in various places from which one was a youth offending organisation which works closely with social workers to prevent young offenders from re-offending and I am currently working as a care support worker who also works with a social worker to provide support for people who are mentally or physically disable.
Working as a care support worker and youth worker has given me a good understanding of a social workers role in society which makes me more eager in pursuing my career as a social worker.
In my previous place of study the university of Central Lancashire where I was studying social policy, British welfare and various other subjects, I realised that I have strong opinions on certain issues and the desire to learn more about these subjects which will be covered in the social work degree.
I feel that by becoming a social worker it will bring many rewards because I feel great satisfaction in helping people through there hard times, and I would like to them doing well once they have overcome there problems.
