Our mission is to transform the lives of vulnerable children through recruiting and developing outstanding individuals to be leaders in social work and broader society.

About us


This year we are looking for 300 outstanding graduates and career changers to join our prestigious 2 year Leadership Development Programme.

On our training programme, you will be empowered to bring about real change and transform the lives of some of the most vulnerable children.


As a social worker, you’ll be joining one of the most challenging, but most rewarding, professions. You’ll work directly with children, families, schools, courts and the police, to empower families to achieve positive change.


On the 2 year programme you’ll help to transform the lives of vulnerable children by developing a range of invaluable transferable skills including relationship-building, conflict resolution and leadership.

Year 1- you’ll earn as you learn, working with 3 other Frontline participants in a local authority child protection team supported by an experienced Consultant Social Worker. You will benefit from 210 days of on-the-job training- more than any other route into social work- and teaching by world class academics.

Year 2- In Year 2 you’ll be fully qualified, employed by your local authority and studying towards a fully funded Masters. You will also benefit from our ongoing leadership training and support.

Being a social worker on the programme takes resilience, dedication and qualities you didn’t even know you had. We are looking for people who have a commitment to supporting children and families, are competent at working with people and who have the ability to lead with sound judgement.


By 2020, there will be over 1000 Frontline alumni helping to shape the children’s services social care sector, and building secure foundations for some of our most vulnerable people.

So are you brave enough to do something different?

There’s no career like social work, and no programme like Frontline. Join us and make real change for children and families.
