This module is delivered over 5 days spread over a number of weeks and meets the requirements for Domain A-C of the Practice Educator Professional Standards.
The teaching covers the setting up of a learning environment, relationship based practice, teaching methods and tools, developing reflective practitioners, supervision, linking theory to practice, managing struggling and failing learners, and assessing practice.
The module is academically assessed at 20 credits through an assignment, and practically assessed through a work-based assessment. This is based on a learning programme devised by the candidate during a Practice Learning Opportunity. The assessment includes a requirement for the candidate to undertake a directly observed supervision of the student, focusing on the assessment of the student's learning from the programme delivered, and to obtain feedback from the student social worker with whom they are working.
