Frontline Programme – Social Work (various locations)

Across the South West and England

This is the work that makes a difference! 

Looking for a career that helps people? We’re Frontline, a charity working to make life better
for children with social workers in England. Join our Frontline programme and become a
children’s social worker. You’ll help keep children safe from harm and create positive change
for them and their families. 

On the Frontline programme you’ll get three years of paid training and support. You’ll learn
life-changing skills while working in a local council social work team, putting theory into
practice. You’ll qualify as a social worker and complete a fully-funded master’s degree. With
the support of experienced social workers and your peers, you’ll learn how to work with
families to protect vulnerable children. 

Your journey on the Frontline programme 

Your journey starts in summer, with five weeks of intensive study that takes place mostly
online, with five in-person days. Our leading academics and sector experts will introduce you
to the theory of social work and get you ready for your work placement. 

Once you have a solid foundation, you’ll start your placement in a local council social work
team. You’ll work in a close-knit hub of trainees, managed by an experienced social worker
and supported by your practice tutor. Together, you will start supporting children and families,
while gradually increasing your level of responsibility. Regular skill days and academic work
will deepen your knowledge and after your first year you will qualify as a social worker. 

Year two is when you start to manage your own caseload, while continuing to study and
develop your skills, knowledge and professional confidence. But you’ll still receive high
levels of support from your Frontline practice tutor, local council employer and fellow trainees.

Your third and final year consolidates everything you have learned, as you carry out  a research project and complete the final academic credits of your social work master’s degree. We also offer leadership coaching in year three to support you further..  

This is the work that changes society 

We won’t lie; it’s a challenging profession. You’ll help families living in the toughest
circumstances and struggling with a range of pressures. But it’s also one of the most
rewarding careers. The programme is designed to give you the support you’ll need to thrive
in the role, and the work you do will change lives for the better.  

And the programme is just the start of your journey. When you qualify through our Frontline
programme, you won’t just build a foundation of excellent social work practice, leadership
and innovation. You’ll also become part of the Frontline Fellowship, a growing community of
social workers, trained by Frontline. Together, our social workers have the power to change
society. And that’s why we’ll continue to provide support, training and funding opportunities
to help you grow throughout your career.  

Who we’re looking for 

We are looking for your potential to become an outstanding children’s social worker and
leader, able to empower families to achieve positive change. You don’t need any particular
experience to apply to the Frontline programme. 

We want people who can bring different perspectives and experiences to the programme
and are committed to advocating for the diverse communities that social workers serve. We
are proud of our commitment to increasing the diversity of our Frontline programme cohorts
and supporting applicants from underrepresented backgrounds.
