'She didn't seem like a social worker': Practice Educators’ experiences and perceptions of assessing failing social work students on placement

This report seeks to investigate a key intersection of academic and practical learning in social work training: the assessment of students on placement and the challenges for practice-based assessors in assessing a failing student. Department of Health (2002) requirements for social work education require that students spend at least 200 days in practice learning (in at least two settings); gain experience of undertaking 'statutory' social work tasks (involving legal interventions); and provide services to at least two different service user groups. These practice placements are assessed by practice educators, either placed within organisations, or by independent assessors. Whilst academy-based social work educators generally have recourse to such support mechanisms as collegial discussion, opportunities for moderation and codified assessment procedures when making assessment judgments, the experience of the practice assessor is potentially more isolated – and certainly less well documented. What are practice educators’ experiences and views of the ‘challenging’ or ‘failing’ student on social work placements? What strategies have proved productive in supporting a failing student and what outcomes have educators observed? The present study seeks to answer these questions and to capture and codify some key principles and practices accordingly. In line with recent discussions and concerns within the profession regarding assessment of social work students on placement (Basnett & Sheffield, 2010), the study proffers a sustained and specific focus on the experiences and perceptions of practice educators (PE) to determine their views of the ‘difficult student’, and their sense of the support they require from academic colleagues in order to reach judgments and to implement interventions.

PIVOT Enhanced Reflection - an introduction

Welcome to PIVOT. Within SwapBox you will find a suite of activities that have been designed specifically to help professional learners with the most important aspect of their studies – themselves and the people they work with. These reflexive techniques are derived from the pioneering work in Personal Construct Psychology (Kelly 1991; Fransella 2005). Finding the time to use them will help students to critically reflect upon, identify and explore their developing sense of professional identity through their individual values and personal learning aims. The self-contained activities have full explanatory instructions and there are also accompanying video clips of two people demonstrating their use. The exploratory dialogue between a student and their facilitator (tutor, mentor or assessor) is a key part of the enhanced reflection experience. The tools are designed to build upon each other and so will work best if used in order for the first time.
