Investing in you

Here at Devon, we know your professional development and career is important to you. That's why we have a dedicated workforce development team working directly with professionals in children, adult and mental health teams. We understand the importance of continuous professional development and for that reason we have subscriptions with Research in Practice and Care Knowledge to enable you to keep your knowledge current and up-to-date. Not only that, your appraisal is aligned to the Professional Capabilities Framework (PCF) to give you the tools you need to create your professional portfolio for your Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) re-registration process.

So if you're considering entering social work or are building on your post-qualification knowledge, Devon has opportunities for you both developmentally and professionally. We currently boast our widest range of career opportunities allowing you to map your own social work journey. If you want to move into management or stay in frontline social work, we can support you to do that while you're recognised and rewarded for the amazing work you're doing.

It isn't all about courses, training days and awards though. We hold conferences with keynote speakers on current topics you're interested in and develop bespoke training targeted at certain teams or roles. And we'll give you the tools you need to build your own portfolio and career, including access to a number of online sites, including Care Knowledge and Research in Practice.
