Frontline Leadership Development Programme (Social Work)

We are looking for strong, agile thinkers to join our two-year Leadership Development programme to become children’s social workers.

In the UK alone, half a million children don’t have a safe or stable home. Great social workers can change this. That’s why Frontline recruits and develops outstanding individuals to be the difference in the lives of vulnerable children and families.

The programme will develop your leadership, conflict-resolution, and relationship-building skills to ensure you thrive in this dynamic and challenging role. The skills you will learn will open doors to a wide range of social impact careers inside social work and beyond. 

Following a five-week residential training programme, you will spend two years working directly with children and families, placed in a local authority:

 In year 1, you will work as part of a unit of participants led by a consultant social worker. You will earn as you learn, receiving a tax-exempt bursary of up to £20,000, while undertaking over 200 days of work-based learning and 46 taught study days. At the end of the first year, you will qualify as a social worker.

In year 2, you will practice as a newly qualified social worker and receive leadership development training. You will work towards a fully-funded master’s degree as you earn a salary of £25,000 to £34,000.

Once you have completed the programme, you will join a community of outstanding leaders sharing your passion for leading social change.
