The Rotherham Learning Academy

The Rotherham Learning Academy is a new virtual learning environment and allows our social care teams to take control of their own professional development.

We understand that traditional classroom training is not for everyone, and a tailored approach reflects how we learn best. The Learning Academy has been designed to improve the learning and development opportunities for new entrants into the social work profession as well as and for experienced social work practitioners and managers.

Classroom based learning

There is still a place for classroom based learning and this year our training focuses specifically on:

  • Signs of Safety
  • Restorative Practice
  • Social Pedagogy
