"There is a stable and skilled workforce that is enthusiastic about working in Gateshead." - Ofsted, 2019

"I completed my final year student placement within the Looked After Children's team in 2017. The support given to me and the relationships I built in that time lead to me wanting to return and I gained a job within the team in 2018. It was as if I had never been away, the high level of support continued, and I have now successfully completed my ASYE within Gateshead Looked After Children's Team. " - Social Work Practitioner
