Practice Teaching and Self-Assessment: Promoting a Culture of Accountability in Social Work

Show Summary Details

Preview

This paper starts from the premise that self-assessment in formal examination systems can be meaningfully understood as a contribution to the intended ‘professionalization’ of social work. Particular strategic significance to this end is ascribed to CCETSW's inclusion of self-evaluation as a major component in assessment for the Practice Teaching Award, which is at the forefront of current developments within the emerging postquahfymg framework. Practical lessons for the selfevaluative task are extracted from the extensive work of a Practice Teacher Programme which has been operating continuously since its inception as a demonstration project in 1990. It is submitted that these lessons merit broader consideration in the context of the promotion of a culture of accountability within social work generally.
