Return to Social Work

Has it been a while since you left social work? Maybe you had a career break or perhaps you left to care for your own family? Whatever the reason you left, we can help you get back into your profession.

The Return to Social Work programme offers free training to social workers looking to return to practice after a career break. Over a flexible period, you will receive high quality training with:

  • hands-on work placements
  • comprehensive coaching and mentoring
  • dedicated interview preparation
  • support to build the skills that you will need to get back to work.

Returning to practice after a period away can be tough. With the support this programme provides, you can regain the confidence, experience and knowledge you need to get back to making a real difference to people’s lives.


Social work isn’t just a career, it’s your career. Join us now, and let’s make a better future for those who need us.

Thank you for your interest in the Return to Social Work programme. Applications for the 2020 programme have now closed.
