NOPT promotes high quality social work practice education.
NOPT has represented the interests of members through consultation with the major bodies involved in social work education. This has included participation in the Reform process including the Professional Capabilities Framework and the development of the Practice Educator Professional Standards (PEPS) in 2010-13. As change seems to be a constant factor in social work, the particular focus of our work has altered over time to reflect changing concerns. NOPT has been involved in recent reviews of the PEPS and will continue to be proactive with any ongoing or further evaluation. Additionally individual members of the committee have contributed to the PCF Refresh.
The NOPT Annual Conference was held on Tuesday 11th July at Sheffield Hallam University. Members can access the speaker presentations in the members area. Non members can join by clicking the button below
NOPT organises an annual conference to bring practice educators and any other interested individuals together to consider the latest social work practice and policy issues and to share good practice.
NOPT attempts to disseminate ideas and information and canvas the views of practice educators across the country to contribute to this debate.
