Social Work student from Plymouth University enjoys placement at Shared Lives South West

Krista Ford who has joined Shared Lives South West on placement as part of her Social Work student from Plymouth University

Krista Ford has joined us at the Devon Office working 24 days as part of her Social Work qualification at Plymouth University. She’s in her first year of her studies and works as a carer to gain experience when not studying.
“My placement was found for me by my tutor at University,” she said.
“While at SLSW on my placement I want to get involved as much as I can. I want to  shadow and training days. I’d also like to meet SLSW families and go on initial visits,” she said.
“When I finish the course I aim to be a social worker but I’m not sure yet which area I’d like to specialise in, it’s early days.”
When she has spare time, social work student Krista enjoys singing and playing the piano.
