What does the academy offer?
We are offering the best and most committed graduates the opportunity to undertake a year-long intensive training and support programme.
You will have high levels of support and mentoring and a phased approach to the volume and complexity of your workload. At the end of your year at the academy, you’ll have the skills, experience and confidence to join our existing workforce.
For the first six months of the academy, you will be based in a dedicated learning environment and spend a minimum of one day a week in a designated social work team. For the second half of the programme, you’ll be mostly based in your social work team with structured outreach support from the academy.
The academy’s innovative programme of bespoke training will support you to make the transition from an academic learning environment to meet the challenges of delivering safeguarding practice of the highest standard.
We recruit twice a year on a rolling programme.
