Frontline

At Frontline – England’s largest social work charity – everything we do aims to make life better for children who need a social worker, to help keep them safe from harm and to give them every possible chance to fulfil their potential.

Each year, our nation’s social workers support hundreds of thousands of children who do not have a safe and stable home. They make a real difference to their lives and to those of their families. Our mission is to create social change for children and families, by developing excellent social work practice, leadership and innovation.

Approach Social Work (formerly known as the Frontline programme)

Approach Social Work (formerly known as the Frontline programme) is a three-year master’s programme, building a new, diverse generation of social workers. Designed and delivered by social work charity Frontline, we teach social work differently. By blending learning and practice, what you discover in theory is eased into real-life settings, supervised by a social worker. Gaining your postgraduate diploma within 12 months, will be the first step in your life-changing career.

You’ll learn how to connect with children, young people, parents and carers. How to gain all important trust, so a family opens their door to you again. You’ll gain the technical skills and build on your relational skills. We’ll give you the time and support to finesse your approach, with confidence.

Who we’re looking for 

We are looking for your potential to become an outstanding children’s social worker and leader, able to empower families to achieve positive change. You don’t need any particular experience to apply to Approach Social Work.  

We want people who can bring different perspectives and experiences to the programme and are committed to advocating for the diverse communities that social workers serve. We are proud of our commitment to increasing the diversity of the Approach cohorts and supporting applicants from underrepresented backgrounds. 

You will also meet the following criteria: 

  • Have at least a 2.2 (predicted or obtained) in an undergraduate honours degree (or international equivalent) 
  • Have obtained GCSE English Language at Grade C/4 or above (or approved equivalent qualification) 
  • Possess the right to work and study in the UK (including access to public funds) for the duration of the programme (until September 2027) 
  • Be resident in England by the time the programme commences 
  • Not be a qualified social worker 

Be part of something bigger. Join the next generation of social workers.

Applications open in September. Register your interest today.
