Join Our New Northamptonshire Children’s Trust
As we move closer to becoming a Trust in Spring 2020, this is an exciting time to be joining children's services in Northamptonshire.
With its own dedicated Board, funding and decision making, the new Trust will focus uniquely on the welfare of the county’s children and young people, their families and carers.
In the meantime, we are raising standards of practice to enable improved service provision and working environments. Our experienced Partners in Practice provide additional capacity and hands-on support, coaching and mentoring. We are also recruiting new Consultant Practitioners, dedicated to supporting social workers specifically with complex cases.
We are committed to achieving stable teams of at least 85% permanent staff and to reducing all caseloads to a manageable level; many of our frontline teams already have reduced caseloads and from October we will have an additional experienced team in place for 26 weeks to support us with reducing workloads and implementing positive change.
High-quality learning and development opportunities are available to our staff, including practice development and management and leadership skills. We have also developed new training programmes for social workers, team managers and service managers which are in line with the anticipated new national social worker accreditation scheme and Department for Education’s knowledge and skills statements.
We are recruiting a board and senior leadership team to champion and deliver our single focus and agile governance.
Children's services are transforming. We encourage ambitious, experienced professionals to bring their good practice to Northamptonshire and join our Trust.
