A fun work place for a student, with consistent ad hoc work.
I worked for Achieving for Children, Disabled Children's Services for several years as a student and enjoyed my time there thoroughly. There was always plenty of bank work, either as a befriender or within the day care centre where plenty of trips were planned for the children.

ProsFree training, plenty of ad hoc work.
ConsLack of staff supervision.
