Developing Together Social Work  Teaching Partnership

Kingston University’s launch of refreshed PEPS

Last Month, Kingston University and the Teaching Partnership’s Practice Education Team welcomed Practice Educators, Supervisors and Workforce Development Leads from across the region to an introduction to BASW’s refreshed Practice Educator Professional Standards (PEPS). The time was used to explore the PEPS refresh and potential implications for practice.
For those unable to attend the headline messages are:
We also used the day to share ideas and best practice on exercises and tools Practice Educators and Supervisors can use with students to support learning and to evidence how students are meeting the PCF domains.  A range of exercises and tools were shared and discussed including some created by trainee Practice Educators as part of their PEPS portfolio and assessment.
The Teaching Partnership has a range of exercises in their ‘PCF Toolkit’ which you can find here and they are keen to develop this further, to include the many excellent exercises and tools created by Practice Educators and Supervisors across the Partnership. We want to be able to create a resource hub or even a publication to showcase the work being completed by Practice Educators and Supervisors, where ideas and best practice can be shared, so please send your creations to
