"ECU has helped me realise the type of youth worker I want to be"
My study experience at ECU has been really enjoyable. The lecturers are extremely helpful, providing me with career advice as well as support within the course.
So far, I've undertaken three work placements, and all have been valuable. Not only have they helped me put theory into practice, they’ve also helped me realise the type of youth worker I want to be.
