Student placements

Active 8 Support Services has provided statutory work placements to Social Work Students for nearly 10 years.

We have our own HCPC Registered, social work staff and trained social work Practice Educators on site.

Our organisation works pro-actively with universities from around the North West: Liverpool Hope; Liverpool John Moore’s; Edge Hill and more recently, the University of Salford to provide 2nd and final year placements to both BA and MA students.

The organisation gives students the chance to work meaningfully in a diverse environment where statutory experience is available across several user-groups alongside local authority departments and staff.

Several successful placements have been made accessible to students with additional, individual needs.
