Practice Education

Developing highly skilled Practice Educators

Our partnership is committed to developing a learning culture and community where social work students are supported by excellent Practice Educators, and other qualified staff.    Therefore we are supporting qualified social workers to develop their practice education skills to ensure students have a high quality learning experience in practice.

Both our university partners offer stage one (PE1) and stage two (PE2) Practice Educator training.  Courses are delivered at various points throughout the year.  They will equip you with the knowledge, skills and approaches necessary to best support undergraduate and postgraduate social work students.

For information on courses available and booking procedures please see the CPD Brochure.

Continuing support for Practice Educators

The partnership is supporting and developing our Practice Educators through the Practice Educator Consultant (PEC) role.  Above all our aim is to invest in the Social Workers of the future and to do that we need to invest in our Practice Educators.

We are continually developing our ongoing programme of support for Practice Educators across our partnership.  In addition please keep checking our Events page for details of upcoming masterclasses and conferences.
