Access from EThOS:
Social work practitioners acquire professional competence through participation in higher education, which in England (since 2003) normally lasts three years. A core element of tfiis knowledge acquisition and skill development occurs through the medium of practice learning within agencies that provide social work services to the public. The argument developed in this thesis can be expressed as a single proposition, that my published work, when taken together, constitutes a consistent theoretical approach, which is designed to enable students, practice teachers and university based staff to work together to better promote and enable students to learn how to become competent practitioners in social work through undertaking periods of practice learning.
