I live in Dorset and want to know how to become a social worker

Come and be a social worker with Dorset Council.

We can offer you:

  • the right tools to support you in becoming a social worker. All our social worker roles require a degree in social care or in an associated discipline, but we have many roles in Children's Services that give the relevant experience
  • an apprentice programme to support existing Dorset Council employees to become a social worker
  • The Academy which is a great internal resource: it supports all roles across Children's Services, not just social worker roles
  • a career development area that supports moves across roles by letting you know what you need to do to progress

Research a role in Children's Services.
