  10. Just Found Your Channel & I Love It. I Just Got Hired As An Assistant Case Manager Through AmeriCorps. I'm Having A Bit Of Trouble Building Trust & A Bond With The Youth. Do You Have Any Tips?

  11. Please if you value your soul do not become a Social Worker. If you want to help people don’t do it. If you are hoping for the reward of feeling good about yourself forget it. Half of Social Workers want to leave in the first two years in the UK. I have done it for twenty years and it has been sheer hell! Particularly if you have a vulnerable background don’t do it. Some people are super resilient most Social Workers are not. If you want to burn out and be stuck to a computer for years go ahead. You will get no support and will be vilified if you complain.

  12. At my uni in Kentucky, USA, to get a bachelors in social work, you had to do 30 hours for freshmen practicum in a social work field, then 130 hours for junior practicum, then 400 hours for senior practicum under a social worker. Of course, here, you have to have a masters degree to be licensed so I'm not sure what additional hours is required for that.

  13. Hi Jasmine. I am currently a 3rd year social work student in South Africa. My desire is to move to Australia after obtaining my honors degree. I wish to know whether I will be accredited for my degree obtained here in South Africa. Please do inform me if you can.

    Thank you in advance 🙂
