Fiona and associate staff can provide social work practice education support to assess students, NQSW’s and at CPD levels. Fiona has skill in supporting universities, students, practice educators and practice learning placements where action plans maybe in place to review issues as they develop and provide support and guidance for practice educators.
Fiona runs workshops for practice educators working with students at undergraduate and post graduate level. She has extensive knowledge of assessment and mentoring of practice educators whilst on their practice educator and Professional Practice Educator training.
Fiona managed and delivered a sub-regional Practice Education Development initiative in the South of England for a year to support and develop practice educators and workplace supervisors. This involved running large training events; supportive workshops for independent and local authority practice educators and having a newsletter to provide resources and information. The service supported practice educators to retain their ‘currency’ under the Practice Educator Professional Standards (PEPS).
Seaspace offers practice assessment and mentoring to NQSW’s on their ASYE; practice educators undertaking training etc. This service can be offered if it is geographically located within reasonable travelling distance to Seaspace.
