Few child protection managers come to their roles with the management knowledge, skills and training to prepare them for the challenge of frontline child protection management. Without ongoing developmental support, it is likely that many will struggle, a number will leave their organisations, and critical child protection outcomes, such as increased child safety and wellbeing, will not be achieved. This paper reports on a 10-month mentoring programme provided as part of a larger research project focused on promoting outcome-focused management in statutory child protection area offices in Queensland, Australia. The 14 mentoring participants reported significant benefits of mentoring, with many experiencing fundamental shifts in their management approach. The research has important implications for social work education in terms of better providing for the educational needs of child protection managers.
