About the Social Work Academy

What is the Social Work Academy (SWA)?

In Coventry we know it is absolutely crucial for our social workers to have continuous professional development - so we have developed the Coventry Social Work Academy.

Coventry’s Social Work Academy is an award winning initiative that offers children and family social work practitioners a pathway through their career with Coventry Children's Services, by creating an environment which supports stability and continuing professional development. The Social Work Academy supports newly qualified social workers (NQSW) through their first 12 months. NQSWs are based in the Academy for the first 6 months, spending a minimum of a day per week with their dedicated host teams. Following successful completion of the first six months, NQSWs then transition out to their host teams. NQSW’s benefit from continued professional development, support and mentoring as they progress through the early stages of their social work career, where they develop and embed best practice to achieve better outcomes for children and families living in the city.
