Page 1: Managing Challenges in Practice

In line with the Royal College of Occupational Therapists and Chartered Society of Physiotherapy legislation, Practice Educators are required to attend update training regularly.  The University of Worcester recommends that training is attended every two years and may not be able to place students with Practice Educators who have not completed this training.

Whilst you only need to update every other year, you are welcome to book on one of these per year to maintain and develop your skills.

All updates will contain a brief overview of documentation and assessment, and an overview of contemporary placements

Managing Challenges in Practice will follow a participant-led format and enable educators to discuss and problem-solve any particular challenges they have faced recently.  These may include, but are not limited to, supporting struggling students, supporting students with additional learning needs, and challenging students who are exceeding expectations.
