Something for me: making my caring experience count

Perhaps you’d like to explore other areas of caring, maybe gain a perspective on what it means to work in social work or health and social care?


Figure 4.3 Naomi (Library image)

Naomi is 24 and is a single parent. She left school at 15 with no qualifications and before having her daughter she worked in call centres. Her daughter, who has just started school, is visually impaired because she has albinism. Caring for her daughter has changed Naomi’s ambitions and she has decided she would like to develop a career in social work.

Naomi has started K101 An introduction to Health & Social Care [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] , which is an overview of health and social care and an introduction to learning in higher education.

We will look further at Naomi’s learning and career path in Session 5.

Here is a selection of courses on OpenLearn that are concerned with the bigger picture of caring in our society.
