About the Event

How   and why do Practice Educators play a vital role in the Quality Assurance of   Practice Learning (QAPL)?

delivered by: Amanda Fitchett

Amanda is an Assistant Professor in Social Work at Coventry University. She is a   registered social worker with Social Work England who qualified in 1994 where   her practice was focused on working with disabled children and child   protection. Amanda moved into academia in 1997 at the University of Leicester   where she was initially the Practice Co-ordinator and later, the Course   Director. After the closure of the School of Social Work at Leicester she   took up the position of the Course Director for the PG Cert Practice   Education at Coventry University.

Amanda’s key interest is Practice Education and the   promotion of social work education both locally and nationally. She is Chair   of the West Midlands Regional Social Work Network, Vice- chair of the Joint   Universities Council Social Work Education Committee (JUCSWEC), Co-Chair of   the JUCSWEC Teaching and Learning Committee, Chair of the West Midlands ASYE   Regional Moderation Panel and an active member of the West Midlands Teaching   Partnership.

Amanda has been a Practice Educator since 1996 and has   been involved in evaluating placements from the perspectives of a PE, a   practice learning assessment panel member, and a chair of practice assessment   panels. She has completed rather too many QAPL forms or similar over her 25   years as an academic and a Practice Educator but strongly believes in the   necessity of ensuring excellent quality Practice Education and placements as   a route to best quality in SW practice.
