Practice Educator Professional Standards for social work
These Practice Educator Professional Standards (PEPS) set out requirements for practice educators at two stages, commensurate with the different levels of complexity and responsibility in teaching, assessing and supervising social work degree students.
These standards came into effect in October 2013, and are minimum requirements for all placements from the academic year 2013/14. From October 2015 all practice educators of social work students must be registered social workers. Partnerships may individually or collaboratively wish to develop requirements at a higher level.
