As an academy member you will be employed fulltime, receive a competitive salary and a comprehensive package of support, training and skill development which will help you become an outstanding social worker.
When in post you will hold a reduced caseload, supported with one to one professional supervision. After a year you will be able, through a rolling interview process, to apply for higher level positions in social work with a level of skill and experience that few NQSWs could match.
The academy is the county council's blueprint for developing quality and standards in social work practice and championing social work in Cumbria. Social work is a valued profession, and for us social workers are the experts in protecting children and adults. We need people who share that vision.
