Frontline are looking for strong, agile thinkers who want to lead social change to join our two-year Leadership Development programme.

The Frontline programme is a unique route into social work. The programme will develop your leadership, conflict-resolution, and relationship-building skills to ensure you thrive in the dynamic and challenging role of a children’s social worker. Following a five-week residential training programme, you will spend two years working directly with children and families, placed in a local authority:

  • In Year 1, you will work as part of a unit of participants led by a consultant social worker. You will earn as you learn, receiving a tax-exempt bursary of up to £20,000, while undertaking over 200 days of work-based learning and 46 taught study days. At the end of the first year, you will qualify as a social worker.
  • In Year 2, you will practice as a newly qualified social worker and receive leadership development training. You will work towards a fully-funded master’s degree as you earn a salary of £25,000 to £34,000.

Once you have completed the programme, you will join a community of outstanding leaders sharing your passion for leading social change. The skills you will learn will open doors to a wide range of social impact careers inside social work and beyond.

In order to be eligible for our programme, you will need to have all of the following:

  • Grade C or above in English Language and Maths at GCSE (or equivalent qualification)
  • 2.1 or higher in an undergraduate honours degree (predicted or obtained) OR a 2.2 in an undergraduate honours degree plus a level 7 (i.e. master’s degree) qualification (predicted or obtained) OR an equivalent qualification
  • Be eligible to reside and study in the UK for the duration of the programme. You must be a resident in England before the programme commences

Throughout our selection process, we will assess your ability to become an outstanding children’s social worker against our competencies. More information on both our selection process and our competencies can be found on our website.
