Achieving for Children

Associate Director chosen for National Practice Leaders Programme

Fi Cisneros, our Associate Director for Safeguarding, has been selected for the national Practice Leaders Programme, designed to nurture a future generation of leaders of children’s services across England.

Fi is one of only 15 senior managers in children’s social care from across the country (out of 82 applicants) to be selected for the programme, following a rigorous assessment centre and interviews with Professor Eileen Munro and Isabelle Trowler, the Government’s Chief Social Worker.

The Programme will be practice based, uniquely designed to facilitate leadership within social work, with an emphasis on learning from doing, preparing participants for a role as a practice leader within children’s social care.

Fi will be continuing in her role with AfC alongside her commitment to the programme.
