Step up to social work

4:17pm - 26 March 2021

Are you looking for a career change and have a passion for protecting and working with children?

Step Up To Social Work is a government-funded programme which enables graduates without a social work degree to qualify as a social worker on a fast-track course.

Social workers provide a critical role and make a real difference to the lives of children, young people and families across North Somerset.

This fast-track programme will help you develop the skills, knowledge and qualifications needed to be an advocate for children and young people.

Applicants, who need at least a 2:1 degree in another subject, will be able to earn a £19,833 tax-free bursary while they learn on the intensive 14-month programme.

Six placements are on offer with North Somerset Council.

Applications close on Wednesday 7 April and the programme will run from January 2022 until March 2023.
