The workshop will be a blend of both interactive and taught learning. Participants will have opportunity to engage in discussion, share ideas and deliver feedback within small group work exercises. The workshop will support Practice Educators in developing and enhancing their knowledge, skill and confidence in facilitating critically reflective supervision with their students in a way that is an effective two way process to the students learning.
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.
