Program Description

The aim of this course is to give practicing social workers the opportunity to enhance their career prospects via gaining a postgraduate level qualification. The programme is designed to equip you with the knowledge, values and skills required to gain both stage 1 and 2 of the PEPS (Practice Educator’s Professional Standards) and assess others in the workplace. These qualities are transferrable to other roles within the workplace such as practice supervisors and managers.

Coventry University has been providing social work CPD (Continuous Professional Development) courses and modules to local employers for many years and has current prominent links with nearby local authorities and voluntary sector organisations.

The Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert) in Practice Education has been designed to build on these established provisions and to facilitate the development of experienced and expert practitioners in social work.

All students on this course will already be in employment as qualified social workers. However, the course embeds enhanced employability through a variety of initiatives such as the further development of transferable skills (e.g. communication and assessment skills, leadership and mentoring skills). These skills develop the qualities needed for employment in circumstances requiring sound judgement, personal responsibility and initiative in complex and unpredictable professional environments.
