Practice based learning
Candidates are required, as part of the module’s learning content, to provide a social work candidate (e.g. NQSW/ASYE, AMHP, BIA) with supervision, learning support and assessment.
Assessment is through a written account of being a practice development educator and the presentation of a portfolio of examples of performance drawn from a range of practice documents and feedback.
