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

Continuing Professional Development Offer

We passionately believe that investing in our people is key to helping them provide practice-led services that are focused on achieving the best outcomes for our most vulnerable residents.

Linked Scale / Extended Grade Posts

As part of our commitment to retaining and developing our professionally qualified staff, we have developed a linked grade scheme to enable social care staff in children’s services to progress to Advanced grade without moving away from their existing area of work. ​

The Assessed and Supported Year in Employment (ASYE)

Social work can be a challenging profession, especially for those new to the role. The ASYE is a twelve month programme for supporting newly qualified social workers during their first year in employment, helping them to develop their skills, knowledge and professional confidence.

Step Up To Social Work

We actively support the Step Up To Social Work programme through our partnerships with local universities.
