BA Education with Psychology (formerly Childhood, Youth and Education Studies)

Placement with Lights Project, Bournemouth Social Care

For my placement I worked for a service that offers play therapy to children and young people affected by parental alcohol and substance misuse. The experience has been invaluable; it has confirmed for me that I want to become a child psychotherapist and I have been very fortunate to have been offered a job when I graduate! I would highly recommend doing a placement. The knowledge, experience and skills you acquire set you apart from other graduates and it is a fantastic opportunity to get a feel for what it’s like in a real working environment.
