The South Yorkshire Teaching Partnership (SYTP) have worked collaboratively to develop a number of initiatives aimed at supporting progression and career pathways for our social workers – through their initial training, to their ASYE and beyond. For example:

  • Purest statutory placements have been provided to 99% of students for a second year running
  • Placement 1 has been extended to 100 days to enhance student skills and experience
  • We have developed a series of workshops for students to increase knowledge around current social work frontline practice and employability skills
  • Employability rates have increased, with more students obtaining jobs within SYTP LAs following graduation
  • We work closely with Children’s Social Work Matters to advertise jobs to students and NQSWs
  • We have developed a robust, shared ASYE programme for children and adults services
  • We have developed an Advanced Practitioner Framework to provide accredited CPD opportunities linked to clear career pathways.
