Sarah has worked with Building Self-Belief as her work placement year for her studies at the University of Newcastle. Over the year, her increased knowledge and understanding of children and young people's self-belief has aided the charity in their goals to improve children's well-being. She has enjoyed working with the young people involved in the programmes and has further developed her knowledge and practical skills, as well as helped the young people to improve their self-belief. Sarah particularly enjoyed the garden project at North Durham Academy, where she worked with the students to research and design and then actually create the garden.
Sarah is extending her experiences of her work in the charity by becoming a Research Assistant. She will continue to support the work of Building Self-Belief in a variety of different ways and they are delighted that she has agreed to stay.
