Redbridge is an ambitious, diverse, and exciting east-London borough. What we do is driven by changing our relationship with local people to support our vision. As a result, we've developed innovative ways to build our communities and transform our Council.
We're one of the fastest growing parts of the country and the third most diverse London borough. Our communities are attracted by a mixture of excellent schools, relatively affordable housing, high-quality open space, and rapid transport connections into the heart of the city.
This is an exciting time for Redbridge as we are seeking Newly Qualified Social Workers to join our next cohort for the Assessed and Supported Year in Employment (ASYE) programme across our ‘Outstanding’ Children and Families services.
As a Newly Qualified Social Worker (NQSW) you will be registered on the Department for Educations Assessed & Supported Year in Employment’ (ASYE) programme, giving you access to a unique range of support and development opportunities in your first year of practice. Along with regular feedback and supervision from your manager, you will have access to protected development time to reflect on your progress against the PCF and KSS.
Your ASYE Professional Development Plan will tailor your progressive development needs to make best use of the support programme available to you including a reduced case load and a dedicated NQSW training programme. Opportunities to feedback on your experience, share in case discussions with other NQSWs and meet regularly with senior managers (including the Principle Social Worker) are provided in our Group Supervision sessions.
Future career progression opportunities are provided through our Post Qualifying Continuous Profession Development programme. This will enable you to not only become the best practitioner you can be by the end of your ASYE, but to map out a career pathway for yourself in Redbridge.
You will have a detailed understanding of the Children's Act, relevant legislation policies and procedures; be registered with Social Work England and have a recognised social work qualification.
