Your career journey
We are committed to supporting the career journey of Frontline fellows and the majority of fellows continue to work in the social work profession. However, some fellows decide to move away from direct frontline practice where they can lead change in broader society.
WHAT KIND OF ROLES DO FELLOWS GO INTO?
After completing their respective programmes, Frontline fellows embark on a wide variety of roles. As mentioned above, the majority continue in social work, with individuals moving into consultant social worker roles, specialist areas such as domestic violence, and others completing further qualifications.
Outside of direct child protection social work fellows have taken up roles with the Children’s Commissioner, the Anna Freud Centre, policy roles within the Department for Education, as well as joining the Frontline charity, to name a few.
HOW CAN THE FELLOWSHIP SUPPORT ME IN MY SOCIAL WORK CAREER?
Through the Fellowship work we hope to support individuals to progress in their social work careers through a selection of practice based workshops that will focus on developing individuals’ practice skill. In addition to this a number of fellows have reached out to other fellows within the movement to ask for advice and mentoring.
