This is an exciting opportunity for graduates already working in Children and Young People's Service (CYP) Adult and Community Services (ACS), employed in Suffolk County Council.
Are you interested in developing your career into Social Work?
The University of East Anglia (UEA) in conjunction with Suffolk County Council are offering a number of places on the 2-year full time MA in Social Work course, commencing in September 2020.
Social Work Practice placements for both years will be arranged by SCC. This will be a 70-day placement in the first year and a 100-day placement in the second year.
- you need to have worked for Suffolk County Council for at least one year at the time of application
- your current role needs to involve direct contact with children, young people )and parents in a helping role), or with adults
- you need to have a first degree completed in the last five years at grade 2:1 or above. If candidates fall outside of this time frame, then they will need to show evidence of recent study. (2:2 grade may be considered if experience is substantial and relevant)
- you must have discussed this with your line manager.
You will be able to apply for an NHS Bursary to help meet part of the cost of fees and living expenses. In addition, Suffolk County Council will provide a retainer of £6,200 for each year of the MA.
You will need to sign a retainer, as an agreement between SCC and yourself, that you will return to work in one of our frontline children's social care team for a minimum of 2 years on successful completion of the course and successful job interview. Please note: there are no guarantees of receiving a Bursary and it will be the applicant's responsibility to cover any shortfall of the university fees to UEA from the Bursary amount awarded.
