The North London Social Work Teaching Partnership’s Practice Education Training Programme is offered in partnership with Middlesex University primarily to qualified (Level 1 and / or 2) Practice Educators, to enhance the quality of practice learning opportunities across the partnership, developing and sustaining an anti-racist & anti-oppressive learning environment.
This Training Programme is primarily aimed at qualified Practice Educators, willing to supervise students qualifying for their BA Social Work or MA Social Work during their placements, but open to all professionals involved in a student’s journey on placement. 
Practice educators play a crucial role of public protection by overseeing the safety of a student’s practice on placement, as well as assessing a student’s competence and suitability to progress through their initial training. The Programme consists of six sessions (summary below). We would encourage you to attend ALL sessions to receive the full benefits of this training programme.
