Hear a few testimonies from people who have worked at Langley:
- Being a support worker taught me a multitude of valuable skills that I still use everyday within my current role in a prison. These include, learning about the criminal justice system, working directly with individuals who come from varying backgrounds with complex forensic/mental health histories, learning how to effectively support men with their journey back into the community, and experiencing invaluable weekly handovers from a Forensic Psychologist.
- Having the opportunity to build such trusting relationships with clients I feel I have learnt so much and will be able to further my career with a better understanding of the real complications and concerns people have.
- It’s incredibly useful to get forensic experience if you want to progress within the criminal justice system and Langley can provide that experience. I’m very thankful for my time working here and I can truly see the benefits of my experience now that I’m working towards becoming a Registered Forensic Psychologist.
- As a support worker, I have been able to make a real difference for many clients’ lives and can see the contributions I make paying off daily.
- This was a perfect placement for a year in industry for any degree relating to Psychology, Criminology, Social Care, Sociology or even Law. It has equipped me with a wide transferable skillset and knowledge that I will carry into completing my Psychology and Criminology degree and future career.
- No two days are the same – jobs included helping clients with daily tasks (laundry, cooking etc.), financial/medical support, assisting them out in the community, going on day trips, taking them to appointments, completing paperwork, administering medication.
