Three years ago I was sponsored by my employer to complete an MA in Practice Education. I chose Goldsmiths as it has a good academic reputation; as a young person I never dreamed I would be a student at Goldsmiths. I really valued the support and encouragement I received from the tutors.
The course was interesting, challenging, demanding and thought-provoking. It stretched me, expanded my thinking and made me realise my capabilities not just professionally but personally. Goldsmiths is organised, consistent, reliable and treated us like professionals. Plus, it's a great community to be part of. I know from my own experience as a manager that employers are aware of the calibre of students graduating from Goldsmiths.
As a result of the course, I've recently been appointed as Practice Development Manager at Southwark Council. I have also been invited to teach on a module of the Practice Education course at Goldsmiths for those who are supervising newly qualified social workers."
