Practice Education in Social Work
A Handbook for Practice Teachers, Assessors and Educators

July 2008 | 203 pages | Learning Matters
Written specifically for practice educators, this book examines contemporary theories and knowledge in practice learning, teaching and education, with a clear emphasis on developing the skills and practice of the individual. Another key focus of the book is to help readers to reflect on the implications of this for their role as practice educators, giving them the time and space to make proactive and informed choices. The book is structured around the new Post-Qualifying Standards for Practice Education, making it an invaluable and thoroughly comprehensive guide.
