Case study:

Nasim Aslami
Student Placement
Bachelor of Mental Health & Alcohol and other Drugs

As a placement student, I have developed many professional skills by attending conferences and meetings alongside with CEO of iEmpower. It has been a great experience to be here as this placement really improved my skill and knowledge that make me ready and highly confident to get out there and work in any field.

The staff of iEmpower fits with the organisations values and believes, because everyone is respectfulness. If I was going to finish my study successfully, you all are part of my journey, without your support throughout my placement.
