Social Workers (Level 1) NQSW/NIPE (Cohort 20) C005 CHSE

Children's Services

£30,451 – £32,234 per annum (Scale I)

37 hours per week

Permanent contract (pending successful completion of ASYE)

 

Starting your Social Work career - Join Norfolk Institute for Practice Excellence (NIPE) for a supported start.

 

You may have just finished or still be completing your Social Work course or have completed some time ago but never worked in a statutory social work role. Norfolk Children’s Services are recruiting those who have not yet done their Assessed and Supported Year in Employment (ASYE) into our highly successful Norfolk Institute for Practice Excellence (NIPE) programme of support. We have been recognised by OFSTED as providing an ASYE that is an example of national best practice and we are committed to continuing to improve and to develop further in enabling our newly qualified social workers to build a foundation of excellence as they begin their statutory social work career.

 

We want those who come through our programme to remain with us and to continue to develop and progress while they provide a quality service to children in Norfolk. We have recently expanded our programme of support to provide a second year of support and development pathway, as we believe this will give you the best possible opportunity to develop the skills you need to be the best social worker you can be.

 

If successful you will be placed from the beginning of your ASYE journey in a team in one of our six localities, working alongside and learning from the experienced social workers and Team Manager. You will have a protected caseload and a dedicated Practice Consultant, an experienced senior Social Worker, to support you and act as your assessor during your ASYE and throughout your first two years in practice.

 

You will receive a training calendar and will be given the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of our Teaching Partnership with the UEA, increasing your knowledge and skills. You will also benefit from protected development time and will receive regular supportive and reflective supervision on both an individual and group supervision basis.

 

We are proud of our social workers and our commitment to supporting newly qualified social workers. We have a proven track record of investment in newly qualified workers and are determined to help you to become the best social worker that you can be. We will expect a lot from you but in return you can also expect a lot from us.

 

If you want your ASYE to be stimulating and challenging, want to be taking the first steps of your statutory social work career in an environment that values you, and if you want to be well supported as a newly qualified social worker, then Norfolk’s NIPE programme is just what you are looking for.

 

We also offer opportunities to join us as a Social Work Assistant in advance of your cohort starting so that you can gain experience and paid employment. If you are interested, please let us know within your personal statement or at interview.
