Introduction

Research suggests that one of the most valued learning experiences for social work students on BA (Hons) and MA programmes are the practice learning placements. The success of these are often determined by the skills and knowledge of the practice educator. 

This course will aim to produce high quality social work practice educators who are able to produce evidence-informed assessments of social work students and newly qualified social workers. 

Exploring theories of learning, teaching, assessment and supervision, this programme provides practical skills, creative approaches and underpinning theoretical frameworks to candidates to become accredited stage-2 social work practice educators in line with the Professional Educator Professional Standards (PEPS).
