by | 0 comments

Recognising the vital role social workers play in supporting some of the most vulnerable children and families, local authorities will be allocating a share of £11.7 million to hire up to 461 extra social work apprentices, as part of the government plans to build a social worker workforce fit for the future. The extra funding will bolster the workforce and better support the most vulnerable families and children across the country. Over 1,000 new trainee social workers have also been recruited, and will be supported in their initial education this academic year through the fast track to social work and step-up programmes.
