Return to Social Work

Getting back into social work after time away can be tough, but with the right support you can regain the confidence and knowledge you need to get back to making a difference to people’s lives.  Kirklees Council recognise that everyone’s circumstances are different and that some people may have maintained their Social Work registration but have not recently practiced as a Social Worker.  Kirklees Return to Social Work Programme enables  them to develop current practice experience to support a return to statutory Social Work.

For further information and contact details please see the Kirklees Return to Work Programme.
