Developing Together Social Work  Teaching Partnership

Practice Education Team

The Practice Education Team within the Partnership comprises two Practice Education Consultants and two Practice Education Development Workers. Our overarching responsibility is to develop the quality and quantity of our practice learning provision within the region in order to ensure our students are best placed to enter and make an impact in the marketplace.

We will not be able to achieve this in isolation and so will be working closely with a range of others: Practice Educators, Practice Supervisors, Workforce/Learning and Development leads, tutors, lecturers and Practice Assessors.
