Here at NESWA we like to think we do our bit for Practice Educators and chances are most PEs will be gearing up to take their next student on placement as we speak, if they haven’t already arrived!
Below is a document circulated by our Placement Coordinator, Helen, authored by The College of Social Work. The document is a Practice Learning Guide for Student Placement Criteria based on whether the student is experiencing a first or final placement.
The document outlines the experiences required for both sets of students as well as outlines the responsibilities of each party involved in a placement including the student.

In addition to the above, we have also been made aware of possible funding opportunities for placement providers in conjunction with the What Works Centre for Children’s Social Care. The funding relates to specific project work outlined below:
- Empowering Social Workers to reduce the need for care
- School-Based Social Workers
For further information, please see the below document. The deadline for submitting a proposal is Wednesday 31st OctoberChange Programme pack-final
