Social work is a leadership profession in which you’ll need to inspire, persuade and bring out the best in diverse groups of people. To help our social workers develop those skills they will benefit from our bespoke CPD and leadership development programmes with additional masterclasses which have been carefully designed with our partner Russell Group University to support them to work with purpose in a range of challenging settings to bring about change.  We have clear social work and management training and career pathways. (See attached Advanced Practitioner framework and career pathway).

We are currently expanding our workforce to include additional Advanced Social Work Practitioners and Contact Liaison Officers who will provide a consistent contact point for families, carers and professionals allowing social workers to concentrate on more direct work out in the community.
