“Life Long Learning”- Professional Development is key!
Your career is in Your hands… Professional Development experience could be what makes you more attractive to a potential employer or client, as it could give you that edge within a recruitment process.
No matter what career path we choose, what is it that makes a professional stand apart from others in the field?

All too often we can get into a nice cosy bubble of comfort within our work life and miss out on the exciting world of ‘Life Long Learning’. Like in any field, you need regular professional development and education if you want to stay fresh and excited about your chosen career. After all, if you’re feeling stale and routine, it will be difficult to engage those inquisitive minds in your care on a daily basis.
Here at Placement Solutions we will support and encourage the development of our staff members, offering workshops relevant to the Children’s Services field, but also encourage you to seek out your own. With our clients at the forefront of our minds, we understand that they will want to seek out the Agencies which are on the top of their game and well-aware of the latest research and developments in this niche market.
