Social workers are at the heart of what we do.
In Devon, we’re committed to providing the support, training and development you will need to continue to improve your professional practice as a social worker.
You’ll have regular supervision sessions with your manager, appraisals, and learning and development opportunities.
We have caseloads which enable practitioners to do meaningful work with families and a focus on the quality of practice and improved learning, supervision and support for our social workers.
You’ll be encouraged to work smarter with access to a mobile phone, laptop, risk assessment training and care planning resources.
If you have experience in other social work sectors and wish to broaden your knowledge you can join our six-month transition programme. It provides an opportunity for qualified and HCPC registered social workers to ‘transition’ into a children’s social work role. You’ll get structured support during the transition and regular progress reviews,
Our successful programme has supported social workers with experience overseas to join our children’s teams as well as those with experience in areas such as mental health or adults’ teams or those who have taken a career break and want a supported return.
