3 year Steps to Success programme

The Learning Academy has developed an innovative 3 year Steps to Success programme which offers a wrap around support package for social workers in their first three years of practice.

This has enhanced the experience social workers have during their ASYE, as well as ensuring the right support continues to be in place afterwards to enable you to develop and build your career here in Tower Hamlets.

This is having an excellent impact on our staff retention as well as the overall quality of social work practice.

The Academy is designed to be with you throughout every step of your career, supporting and empowering you through our commitment to 5 basic principles:

  1. Relationships at the heart of practice
  2. Enabling practice excellence
  3. Investing in new social workers
  4. Creating a culture of innovation
