The Practice Education programme at Kingston University will enable you to progress through the Professional Capabilities Framework (PCF) levels and develop your leadership skills. The course is aligned with Chief Social Workers' Knowledge and skills statements for practice leaders and practice supervisors.
This course is a well-established programme with a strong professional reputation. It has been developed in partnership with agencies in south-west London and Surrey and users of social work services.
The programme starts with preparing you to work with a social work student on first placement (Stage 1). You will develop a practice curriculum for the placement and learn how to manage a placement, help the student learn and how to assess their achievement. You will put this into practice by providing a 70-day placement to a social work student. You will then reflect on your practice and evaluate your practice curriculum as part of the assessment for the first module.
In Stage 2, the second module, you will have the experience of providing a 100-day final placement to a social work student. There is a strong focus in this second module on developing your reflective supervision skills.
If you have significant experience in practice education, or you have taken an Enabling Others' Learning (Social Work) course you may be able to accredit your prior learning and experience (RP(E)L) and join the Stage 2 module directly.
