British Asians Welfare Association (BAWA) officers work with schools, pupils and families to support regular school attendance. They help to sort out problems in school or at home. If you want to help children make the most of their school years, this could be perfect for you. Employers will expect you to have some experience of education or the protection of children. Some may expect you to have or be prepared to work towards a qualification in social work. Others may allow you to train on the job. To become an education welfare officer, you will need to be a good listener without judging people. You will need to be able to build good working relationships with pupils, parents and teachers. A calm and firm approach in difficult situations is needed.
