About the Academy
We have developed and implemented a new integrated approach to social work education, learning and professional development in Children’s Social Care.
This approach will change and develop in response to service priorities and national agendas that provide frameworks for what we do.
We will provide our staff with information on the learning and development frameworks available to them, and how these respond to their career and development aspirations.
For people interested in working in Children’s Social Care, this website will provide you with information on the learning frameworks we provide and how we can assist in your ongoing professional development.
