I am responsible for developing the teaching, learning and assessment of motivational interviewing (MI), one of three practice models that make up the Frontline programme curriculum.
I was interested in working at Frontline as I think the charity offers an excellent training programme for social workers. It equips them for the realities of the role and the skills to effect meaningful change with children and families.
I have really valued the opportunity to help shape a curriculum that offers participants skills that will be valuable to them in frontline practice. I particularly enjoy teaching MI and hearing participant’s stories of how it has helped them in their work with families. Teaching such large groups has also developed my confidence in public speaking and has required me to think creatively about how to meet diverse learning needs.
Everyone at Frontline is passionate about social work. In terms of office culture, there is a respect for work-life balance and a culture of celebrating success. It is wonderful to be part of something that is genuinely making a difference to some of the most disadvantaged people in our society.
