Practice educators play an important role in the education of new social workers, offering guidance and assessing students’ first-hand experiences of becoming a social worker.
We run two related training courses for registered social workers who wish to gain the necessary qualification to work as practice educators:
Our training will equip you with the knowledge, skills and approaches necessary to best support BA and MA social work students, and enable you to meet the HCPC requirement for a formal practice teaching qualification.
Training is split into two stages, to reflect the two levels of placement students must undertake: Stage 1 training is required for practice educators supporting students’ initial placement in their first year of study; Stage 2 training for supporting students in their longer, final placement.
We welcome applications from the entire Yorkshire and Humberside region and beyond. See the 'How to apply' tab within the Stage 1 and Stage 2 course information pages. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Sharon Harrison, Programme Administrator: firstname.lastname@example.org.
