Description

The NESWA PE CPD programme was developed as a result of a Practice Educator survey undertaken last year. The findings of which highlighted the importance of Practice Educators meeting together, sharing resources and building on their knowledge and skills. The NESWA Practice Educators’ CPD has been created to bring this vibrant and hardworking community of practitioners together around a programme of several sessions that will cover topics such as induction ahead of practice placement; resources for practice education; working with students with physical and learning disabilities, as well as supporting students to critically reflect on their practice. The programme also includes special one off sessions on coaching and social work in a political context. An important component of all the sessions will be the opportunity for Practice Educators to network.


Workshop description

1 July 2019 - Working with a political context as part of Practice Education: This workshop is aimed at enabling Practice Educators understand more about the Political/political environment in which they work, and how they can help students to prepare for entering the Political/political workplace, and have confidence in understanding how the organisation works, how decisions are made and how this might impact the role of social workers and social work students. The workshop has been designed to assist Practice Educators to think about how they enable their students to approach organisational policy and practice from a critical perspective. Additionally, the workshop also looks to consider the role of the Strategic Social Worker in Local Authorities; how they use social work values influence the strategic direction of the Local Authority, and how social workers and social work students can feed into this process.

Please note places for this workshop are limited.
