Our highest priority is finding a Curriculum Director who is as energised about the prospect of developing FANTASTIC social workers as we are, so we are very open to hearing from people with different skills.

The programmes we run directly benefit over 600 social workers and managers annually, so this role represents a huge opportunity to influence the development of social work practice and leadership in England.

There is a great deal of scope to improve what and how we teach, so we need someone with who thinks deeply about how social workers learn and get better. Using these insights, we want the Curriculum Director to draw on learning from other professional disciplines and effectively implement changes working collaboratively with colleagues. Additionally, they will have had experience of delivering or designing development programmes, be highly organised and engaging.
