Pay For Social Care Students Placement Work.

This petition had 117 supporters

Currently Throughout the country there are hundreds of Social Care students on work placements for 35 hours a week. This is part of the training in University's and Institutes Up and Down the Country.

However something has to change. Currently this is an unpaid placement for all Social Care Workers in Training. This means a lot of people are left working nearly 60 to 70 hour weeks as there is no financial gain,so working a long side of placement is currently the only option. This can lead to burn out for the individual both mentally and physically as academic work also needs to be completed while trying to juggle two jobs. Which means call in days to college and extra expenses on the student also. We want to be able to provide the best Social Care for our clients.

We are not asking for much. Just for some support. 

Please Sign and share this petition to give Social Care Students a helping hand. 

Thank you.
