Changing young lives
When mature student Lisa McLaren decided to return to education, she knew what she wanted to do: help young people.
“Youth work is where my passion lies. The placement really taught me a lot about applying classroom theory to the practicalities of everyday work. I was giving talks in schools, and helping young people learn life skills, how to manage their mental health, and how to find accommodation."Lisa McLaren - UWS Community Education student
“When I left school, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. Taking time out helped me focus on what was important to me. And the support of the UWS staff and tutors has been invaluable. I can’t wait to start on the next chapter of my life.”UWS student Lisa McLaren
