  • Our Fair & Inclusive Action Plan & its background & the four key workstreams
  • Our anti-racism pledge
  • Concepts frequently used when discussing race
  • Our responsibilities and actions we can take

This session is being delivered by Ododo Dafe, Head of Housing Income, Supply & Customer Service

Please note that registration and attendance is being monitored and reported to the Chief Executive and the Executive Leadership Team on a regular basis. Regular reminders will be communicated to services to ensure maximum take up of these briefings.

Social work professionals who Practice Supervise a social work student on placement need to complete the relevant Practice Education learning, in this case: Practice Supervisors – Practice Education Stage 1.

The programme will run between September 2020 and April 2021 

The new in-house Practice Education Stage 1 programme will not be accredited and so will no longer carry PG level credits or count towards post-graduate awards at the Universities.

The workshops are for practitioners with minimal experience of teaching and assessing others who wish to develop their skills.

  • You will not have full responsibility for the assessment of the student as you will work alongside a Stage 2 qualified Practice Educator. 
  • The module has been designed to meet Practice Educator Professional Standards(PEPS) for Social Work.

You will learn via a range of teaching methods including workshops and group discussion. 

You must also be in a position where you can be observed fulfilling practice assessments and teaching on at least one separate occasion by an experienced Practice Educator.
