Code: BH/20/0061 Children's CPD - Practice Education Stage 1

To apply for this module please register your Expression of Interest before the 21st June 2019.

Practice Education learning is based on the Practice Educator Professional Standards (PEPS) which are an ‘employer endorsed’ set of standards meaning employers can endorse whether professionals have met the standards.

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.

What’s changing?

From 2019/20 Practice Education Stage 1 will no longer be taught through the Universities and will instead be an employer endorsed in-house programme.

This will be a five day programme of workshops and reflective group supervision led by our Practice Education Consultants (PECs).

The programme will run between September 2019 and April 2020 (dates TBC shortly).

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 be a Practice Supervisor assigned to a social work student while undertaking the course.
  • 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.
