Meg Niven, an Advanced Practitioner in the Learning & Development team (Adults), graduated from the University of the West of England with a MSc Professional Development Award (Social Work).
Meg says: “As part of the Career Pathway programme, I have steadily been building up academic credit completing modules and assignments that were very relevant to my work in the Learning & Development team.
I have been able to read and research topics such as Practice Education, Supervision and Specialist Practice but also the chance to use this new knowledge in my day time job to support learners and Continual Professional Development (CPD) across the service.
I am incredibly grateful to Somerset and my colleagues who have supported and encouraged me all along the way. Working and studying at the same time is never easy but the results are well worth it.”
