A Candidate’s Tale:

Iminathi (not her real name) wants to become a Social Worker. She has no experience of Social Work, however has taken the following courses, which indicate her strong motivation:

  • Adolescent sexuality and life skills
  • Peace education program
  • Child protection
  • Women’s health
  • Stepping Stones and Organisational Capacity Building

She has worked in a variety of ways with a number of NGOs in the community, as she is dedicated to serving her community. She explains that her motivation to become a Social Worker is due to the recognition that there is a lack of support in the system for young people like herself who have no parents or whose parents are unable to support them. Iminathi would like a Mentor who would provide advice, knowledge and ideas about Social Work and how she can get the training as she is “willing to start from the bottom all the way up if she has to.”
