Social Work Practice Placements

Social Work Practice Placements
Critical and Reflective Approaches

  • Sue Jones - Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester, UK

December 2014 | 160 pages | Learning Matters
All social work students must undertake Practice Placements in the second and final years of their programme and the placement is a crucial area of assessment for passing the degree course.

This book will help to develop student's critical thinking, analytic and reflective skills as they progress through their two placements. It will help them build a successful practice portfolio and understand exactly how they fit into the myriad of other professionals and services that make up day to day reality of practice. Crucially, this book will also feature a chapter on developing these skills into the workplace. Uniquely, it argues that becoming a competent and thriving social worker is dependent on success in the placement.
Preparation for your social work placement
Understanding your placement through an organisational journey
Embedding critical placement learning
Preparing for and using supervision
Completing your portfolio
Moving on – NQSW, ASYE and all that…

Excellent resource for students planning for and undertaking their practice placements.

An interesting book as an introduction. Very basic although would give our first year undergraduates a good introduction to some of the basic issues in social work.
