Workplace learning is receiving increasing attention as an important factor in developing high standards of professional practice. This book provides a valuable overview of the key issues involved in successfully promoting workplace learning.Building on ideas discussed in the author's best-selling work, Practice Teaching in Social Work (Pepar Publications, 1994), this clearly written text covers not only developments in traditional practice learning, but also wider aspects of workplace learning, such as coaching and mentoring, and the development of a learning culture. It examines what is involved in promoting student learning for awards such as S/NVQ or PQ, and contains invaluable guidance for those facing wider challenges in the field. Promoting workplace learning provides a clear introduction to a vitally important topic. It is an essential resource for learning facilitators, assessors, mentors, training and development staff, and managers in the social work field. The principles discussed will also be relevant to managers and human resource professionals in other sectors.
