We’re proud to be recognised for the opportunities we provide for career development, training and secondment.

ASYE Academy

Social work is demanding. We know this, so we’ve made significant investments in a new Social Work Academy to help newly qualified social workers (NQSWs) develop the skills needed to prepare for the demands of front line social work. You’ll have peer support and mentoring, structured learning linked to practice, protected caseloads, frequent supervision, action learning sets and protected study time.

  • A dedicated manager
  • A robust and relevant professional development programme
  • Small group learning with peers
  • Defined learning outcomes with plenty of support
  • Masterclasses with practice leaders

Our ASYE Academy provides a six month virtual academy for six NQSWs at a time working with dedicated line managers in their social work teams. After six months training, you’ll join a permanent team with continued support through the programme.

After the academy

You’ll continue to be able to access support with regular reflective supervision, a protected caseload and 2 days per month for continuing professional development.
