Why choose this course?

  • Gain the core knowledge, skills and values required for the role of Practice Educator in line with current professional standards, and gain opportunities for further research and development
  • Benefit from the systematic and independent ability to critically evaluate both theoretical understanding and application in practice.

This course is designed to provide social workers with skills and knowledge to become effective practice educators and contribute to the learning of others, within the work place and the wider context of social work education.

Mapped against the Practice Educator Professional Standards (TCSW 2013), this course is designed to develop graduates who are able to

  • Provide effective learning opportunities for learners in the workplace and make judgements about the capabilities of learners through an understanding and application of the Professional Capabilities Framework (TCSW, 2012).
  • Apply theories of adult learning in everyday practice to ensure the best outcomes for students and other learners in the workplace.
  • Provide leadership to support the development of a learning organisation which provides lifelong learning and continuous professional development for its workers and so improves the quality of experience for service users, families and carers.

How will I be assessed?

Throughout the course students will encounter a wide range of assessments designed to collectively meet a variety of individual learning styles and to support them in their progress towards becoming an autonomous learner. These methods are designed to test students in all the areas necessary for competent practice as an experienced Social Work practitioner, as well as in the academic disciplines underpinning this practice.
