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'.
The Social Work Reform Board made the decision that social work students should be assessed on placement by a practice educator who has met the learning outcomes set out in the Practice Educator Professional Standards. The Practice Educator Professional Standards for Social Workwere updated by the British Association of Social Work (BASW) in 2019.
There are several documents that set out the expectations and responsibilities of all those involved in the partnership between student nurses, clinical staff and Link Lecturers in the clinical education of student nurses.
