BASW England has developed refreshed standards to promote the development, and awareness, of Professional Standards in Social Work Education within the social work profession and with people with lived experience of social work.
It is hoped that this document will be used to promote the Practice Educator Professional Standards (PEPS) and lead to a wider understanding of the role of the practice educator (PE) by students, employers and anyone involved in practice education.

A statement published by BASW in March 2022 announced the pending review of the Practice Educator Professional Standards (PEPS) published by BASW in 2020. Following a period of productive consultation with key partners the reviewed document is now ready to share and put into practice in the next academic year.
The reviewed document includes guidance and assessment that is fully integrated with the values for social work practice and provides a contemporary and comprehensive set of guidance for PEPS providers, HEI’s and PEPS trainees.
