Practice Educator Professional Standards for Social Work

Social Work England (2020) Practice Placement Guidance explains the roles and responsibilities of Practice Educators 'to support safe and effective learning'.

Please refer to the Practice BASW Practice Educator Professional Standards for Social Work (PEPS) 2020 (2019), which is hosted on the BASW website.
