Does Bridgend CBC have any trainee schemes available?

Bridgend CBC is committed to supporting social work qualifying training and increasing the number of qualified social workers.  However, there are limited resources available for the authority to support trainee schemes. 

At present the authority offers a limited number of places on its secondment scheme which is only available to existing members of staff who are working in a social care setting.

Should this position change, any trainee positions would be advertised on our website within our vacancies section.

Are there any vacancies in Bridgend for Social Workers?
