Your assessed and supported year

Applications have now closed for the ASYE programme

Thank you for your interest in the ASYE programme

We would like to thank everyone who applied for Portsmouth City Council's assessed and supported year in employment (ASYE) programme. We are currently reviewing applications and will come back to applicants in due course ready for the next stage.

What happens next?

Social work graduates who applied for the ASYE programme will now have their application reviewed. If successful, you will be invited to attend an interview at the Civic Offices in Portsmouth.

About the ASYE programme

Every year, Portsmouth City Council works with local universities to recruit social work graduates on to a 12-month programme. The programme aims to develop newly qualified social workers' skills, knowledge and professional confidence at the start of their careers.

As a newly qualified social worker you will have an opportunity to be based within one of our locality teams or through care teams for looked after children, to enable there to be a clear focus on the child and their family’s needs.

This will either be working to provide support under children in need or in need of protection where necessary or when children have come into the care of children’s social care.

Other opportunities to consider

While applications for this year's ASYE programme have now closed, Portsmouth City Council welcomes applications from qualified social workers throughout the year.
