Oxford University

The experience of the first cohort is very telling in this respect in that there was a very low level of drop out, only a few among the first 100. That’s largely due to the quality of the supervision and training. Also important is the strong esprit de corps which comes from participants undergoing the induction together with their tutors and mentors and but also then the ongoing support from their consultant social workers. Front Line is as every bit as focused on recruiting and training the consultant social workers as it is the young graduates as we see the two as being intimately linked; having quality training and supervision is crucial to making Front Line a success.
