Welcome to the portal!

Congratulations on securing an offer for the Frontline programme! This page will serve as a central location for resources to assist you in navigating through our pre-programme checks. In the run up to the programme, this is the space where we will continue adding the resources and tools you need to prepare for your journey into social work, so watch this space.

Our mission

Frontline is England’s largest social work charity. Everything we do aims to make life better for children who need a social worker, to help keep them safe from harm and to give them every possible chance to fulfil their potential. We do this through developing excellent social work practice, leadership and innovation.

The Frontline programme bulletin

The Frontline programme bulletin is the regular update from Frontline – with important information about your pre-employment checks, local authority placement and the summer institute.

It is imperative that you read each edition as this will contain important information and actions that you won’t be able to start the programme without completing.
