A two year high powered graduate scheme, called Frontline has been launched to attract graduates of exceptional quality into Social Work. Like Teach First, after a brief (5 week) a period of intensive training, you will be launched into the field, so will be placed in a Children and Families social work department, with a mentor, together with other trainees. The intensive programme means you qualify as a social worker within a year, gaining a postgraduate diploma after which you can progress to a Masters if you wish. A leadership development programme is integral to the course. Like all graduate training schemes, Frontline is paid employment. Entry requirements – A 2:1 is needed, together with 300 UCAS points.
For Teach First, plenty of experience of working with young people/leadership/teaching is expected, as well as evidence of extra curricular activities – so expectations may be similar with Frontline.The next round for applications will open in Autumn 2014.
