Falkirk, Stirling, and Clackmannanshire Councils alongside colleagues in Police Scotland are working together to implement the national Scottish Child Interview Model to improve the quality and consistency of joint investigative interviews of children across Forth Valley. By working in partnership as a co-located team we will demonstrate our commitment to this child centered, trauma informed approach which is intended to improve the child’s experiences of child protection and Court processes.
We are actively seeking to recruit 4 highly motivated, skilled social workers who will encompass the values and vision of this specialist Forth Valley Team.
The team will consist of 10 staff including a Detective Sergeant, a Social Work Team Manager, 4 Social Workers and 4 Detective Constables.
The Social Work posts will be hosted by Falkirk Council and will be subject to Falkirk Council’s terms and conditions.
To deliver the Scottish Child Interview Model, successful candidates must attend all training dates and successfully pass the training course. There will be modules in December 2023 and January and February 2024, as well as course reading prior to and during the training. You will be committed to ongoing personal learning and development.
You will have the opportunity to thrive and develop as a social worker at Advanced Practitioner level, within a strong Forth Valley Social Work /Police partnership, which has children, and their right to justice and recovery, firmly at its heart.
Please note that successful candidates will require to be fully available between the 4th and 20th December to undertake Modules 1 and 2 of the intensive training.
Secondment opportunities are available for existing social workers in Falkirk, Stirling and Clackmannan Council.
The work base of the team is still to be confirmed.
