The Frontline assessment centre is a chance for you to further explore the job of a social worker and share your enthusiasm for the programme.
Over the course of four hours, you will be evaluated by our team of trained assessors, including specialist social workers and care-experienced young people. Throughout the day we will also be looking for evidence of your professional conduct and time management.

Conversation with a care-experienced young person
