Have A Placement With Us
We are a well-recognised Centre for placements – whether that’s trainee counsellors, psychotherapists, or social work students.
We have a working agreement with Manchester Metropolitan University for the placement of social work students, including our own in-house practice teacher.
We have a limited number of places available for counsellors in training. This is because many of the women waiting for counselling need to be seen by a qualified counsellor, so we may not be able to offer you enough hours to complete your placement hours. However, if you have a background, or work experience, in mental health or support work, then please get in touch with your CV.
Social Work Placements
Social work placements are available for 2nd and 3rd year students. Learning opportunities involve holding a caseload offering 1-1 support, drop-in work, attending statutory meetings, group facilitation, needs and risk assessments, safeguarding experience and crisis interventions. SWC offers a safe learning environment, with access to a multi-disciplinary team with varying levels of expertise.
