Your development: Children's Services

We will invest in you and support you to become the best you can be. This will help you, and us, deliver outstanding service for our children and their families.

To help us achieve that we have:

  • A Children Services Academy, to help you develop your practice.
  • A commitment to support you in your Continuing Professional Development and a comprehensive training programme that provides you with training opportunities throughout your career
  • Close working links with colleges and universities, including Kingston University.
  • An ethos of support, providing you with regular individual and group supervision to develop your skills in different areas.

Career progression

This means there are significant opportunities for career progression as the skills developed on our Family Safeguarding teams become increasingly sought after nationally. The success of the Family Safeguarding model has been recognised by central government, and is set to be rolled-out nationwide in the near future. As an early adopter of the model, Surrey is ahead of the curve and members of our Family Safeguarding teams are at the leading edge of innovation in the sector.
