Step Up to Social Work training programme

Are you a trainee social worker looking for a full time programme that allows you to register and practice as a social worker?

Step Up to Social Work is an intensive, 14 month bursary paid training programme that offers you hands on experience of working in a real life social work role. On completion, you will obtain a Diploma in Social Work, allowing you to register and practice as a social worker.

Social work is a challenging but rewarding career through which you can make a real difference for children and families. You will need to build relationships with families facing difficult times, show a lot of patience and be a good listener.  You’ll also need good observational skills, analytical thinking and sound judgement to make the right decisions and protect children.  Social work regularly tests resilience, stamina and resolve - all of which you will need to succeed. But social work can be life changing for those you support and help.

The training programme is looking for graduates who have experience of working with children, young people and families and who can demonstrate their maturity and emotional resilience.

Do you have what it takes? You will need:

  • a minimum 2:1 level 6 degree qualification.
  • or, a minimum 2:2 honours degree plus a higher degree (level 7 or above)
  • grade C or above GSCE in English/ English Language and Maths (or recognised equivalent)
  • experience of working with children, young people and families.
