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.
