Practice Placement Educators Courses for 2016/7 – Occupational Therapy
Practice Placement Educators Courses
The practice educators’ courses for the next academic year will be:
Falmer: day 1 Sept 9th day 2: April 5th
Eastbourne: day 1 Jan 18th day 2: 17th May
Eastbourne: day 1 March 8th day 2: 19th July
Day one will include theory, practical tasks and information related to practice education for the two OT courses at Brighton. Participants will then be required to take a student for at least one placement before returning for a second educator’s day which will focus on reflections, group discussions and additional learning related to their experiences of taking students. If you have been qualified for 18months and would like to start taking students and want to do the educators course then please contact Lisa Harford to reserve a place: L.E.Harford@brighton.ac.uk .
It is a requirement that, as part of your application for these free educator courses, you offer a student placement and this is now essential in order to attend day 2 of the course and receive your CPD certificate. Please discuss this with your team or placement coordinator before requesting a place on the course.
Please note that you do not need to have done the educators course to offer a 2 week beginning practice placement- this is good experience for those interested in taking student’s prior to course.
