In Children and Families newly qualified social workers join an Academy ASYE cohort which meets for a day each fortnight for training and reflective group supervision. You will be allocated an Academy Social Work Lead to provide practice and ASYE portfolio support, and they will also offer one to one reflective supervision to complement the regular supervision that you will have with your line manager. You will have a reduced workload to make time for your learning and development.

The cohort group model enables you to make relationships with other newly qualified social workers across the service, accessing important peer support. Your Early Professional Development support continues in the second year of practice, during which you will continue to have the support of your Academy Social Work Lead, and further training. Taken together, the learning and development support provided over these two years is designed to enable you to develop all the knowledge and skills contained in the post qualifying standards for children and families social work practitioners.

What qualifications will I need?  

You will need to have a social work qualification recognised by Social Work England (SWE).

How often you usually recruit?  

We recruit throughout the year. We can consider newly qualified social workers for many of our social work posts, an advertisement will specify if post qualifying experience is essential. We have ASYE Academy cohorts starting throughout the year as required by successful applications.

We will consider applications for NQSW posts from applicants in the final stages of their degree, for a start date after their exam board has confirmed a pass. You cannot practice as a social worker until you are registered with Social Work England. Sometimes recruiting managers will consider an earlier start date in a Family Support Worker role, while you await the award of your qualification.
