  • Practice Educator Professional Standards PEPS Stage 2 

    Practice Educator Professional Standards (PEPS) Stage 2 provides students with the necessary learning to provide an appropriate learning environment for a social work student placement. It will provide the essential information needed for developing the knowledge and skills for supporting students on placement. This will build on and consolidate the learning completed at Stage 1, and teaching will include: supporting students with the application of theories, supervision models, resilience, self-efficacy, scaffolding, and communities of practice.


    Teaching will be aligned to the Practice Educator Professional Stage 2 Standards (College of Social Work, 2013) and designed to support students with developing the skills and knowledge needed to successfully support social work students on placement. PEPS students will be assessed through an assignment, observation of practice and a portfolio of evidence.

  • You need to have: completed PEPS 1; two years post qualifying social work experience; be a registered social worker with the HCPC; and have an enhanced DBS for working with children and adults.
