Cumbria Social Work Academy

We are recruiting for Children's newly qualified Social Workers

We are looking for the best newly qualified social workers to join our Social Work Academy and gain the skills and experience to really make a difference for children and families.

As an academy member you will be employed full time, 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 and be supported with one to one professional supervision whilst undertaking your Assessed and Supported Year of Employment (ASYE). After successful completion of your ASYE you will progress to the next level in your social work career in the Council.

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. We need people who share that vision.

Since the academy's launch in 2015 with our support more than 116 newly qualified social workers have progressed through their Assessed and Supported Year in Employment (ASYE).
