Practice Education Stage 1

COURSE AIM:

This course is for social workers who wish to teach, supervise, and assess social work students in the workplace during an initial Practice Learning Opportunity within social care related organisations.

ASSESSMENT METHOD:

The module is academically assessed at 20 credits through an assignment, and practically assessed through a work-based assessment. This is based on a learning programme devised by the candidate during a Practice Learning Opportunity. The assessment includes a requirement for the candidate to undertake a directly observed supervision of the student, focusing on the assessment of the student's learning from the programme delivered, and to obtain feedback from the student social worker with whom they are working.
