Practise teaching is vital in aiding growth and development in social work education. We have a number of excellently qualified social workers who can assist students through their placements. Our practise educators take overall responsibility for the student’s learning and assessments, utilising information from his/her own experience and other sources. We know practise teaching is a great opportunity for any social work student and we make sure that they fulfil their best potential. Our practise educators will be able offer students their own personal experiences, professional knowledge, skills and attitudes. This process allows students to form their own professional identities and our qualified social workers will aid in blossoming the students talents and help them grow.
