Careers advice for aspiring children’s social workers

Children's Social Work Matters campaign.jpg
Back in November I wrote this piece on the Children’s Social Work Matters campaign, a joint recruitment initiative between the 15 local authorities in Yorkshire and Humber. According to the campaign organisers, over 200 CVs have been submitted since the start of the campaign, 27,000 people have visited their website to find out more about children’s social work as a career and over 100 job-related questions have been submitted to the campaign’s social work “champions”, who were drawn from teams across the county.

I asked the organisers what questions had been submitted. They came back with the following broad themes; I have linked wherever possible to relevant ComCare content

Let me know in the comments section below if you’d like to find out more or if you have any other questions about children’s social work as a career.
