Stanford student succeeds at Social Work at South Essex College

STANFORD’S Ross Miller went back into education to improve his career prospects after working in his chosen sector of social work for many years.

Ross, 28 from Stanford-le-Hope, graduated from South Essex College with a first class honours degree in social work.

He first took the College’s Access to HE course which prepared him for degree study.

Ross said: “After studying for my A-Levels, I worked in the community supporting vulnerable adults. This led to my career path. Social work is always something I’ve wanted to do, I enjoy working with people.

“I get to help disadvantaged individuals and I work to empower them, it feels like I’m helping to make a difference in their lives.”

Completing his degree helped Ross to secure his full-time job. He’s now a registered social worker in a local authority in Essex. He works with vulnerable adults over 65, arranging care packages for them and making sure they’ve got the support that they need.

He added: “This degree is a great achievement for me. I want to thank my family and friends for their support, my tutors were incredibly supportive too.”
