CAREER DESTINATION

KEY WORKER / FAMILY CASE WORKER

MENTORING, SUPPORTING AND SAVING YOUNG LIVES. The path to becoming a family caseworker begins before university. Of course a degree in social work or a related field, like psychology or sociology, is highly valued but it is also the strength of resolve and kindness that makes a Family Case Worker. A family support worker is typically assigned to clients by governmental and social services agencies. This career destination will involve establishing a relationship with individual families, assessing their needs, their eligibility for various types of public aid, and walking them through the application processes. Every case, indeed every family is different - a graduates ability to find resolution across different families will be key to their success.

COMPASS POINTS. There are many different pathways that would give you the experience you need to train in this field. Any degree with the right levels of experience is acceptable but a degree in psychology or health & social care would be an advantage. As with many career destinations there are different voluntary positions which will allow you to progress. Employers generally are more positive towards experience gained in educational, local authority, health care or government agency settings.
