Edinburgh is an exciting city, and this is an excellent opportunity to join us and contribute towards helping all our citizens flourish. The Edinburgh City Health & Social Care Partnership is on a journey to transform the way in which Social Work delivers support and services. There is a transformation programme to ensure that we support adults and older adults with multiple and complex needs and with increasing levels of frailty to live as independently as possible. We work in partnership across services with our health colleagues and a broad range of partners.
We are looking for qualified Social Work Practice Educators who are passionate about inspiring the next generation of Social Workers. We are looking for people who are energetic, imaginative, creative, innovative, and resilient, who work restoratively, and are motivated by achieving positive outcomes for people.
You will be supported to set up an exciting new Social Work Student Hub, which will support student placements across all areas of the Partnership. As a Practice Educator you will work closely with colleagues across the Partnership and higher education. You will have an assessing and coordinating role in locality teams to ensure there is a full and varied learning opportunity for each social work student. This post has a role in securing our future workforce.
You will support students to learn how to undertake a range of statutory tasks including assessments and support planning, risk assessment and risk management and Carers’ assessments. You will support students to learn how to work as part of a multidisciplinary team and how to support adults, their families, and carers, to balance the complex areas of risk and need with choice and rights. You will also need to be able to provide advice, support and guidance for a range of tasks. To support you in this you will work with colleagues and have regular supervision and training.
This post is considered Regulated Work with Protected Adults, under the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007. Preferred candidates will be required to join the PVG Scheme or undergo a PVG Scheme update check prior to a formal offer of employment being made by the City of Edinburgh Council. Your PVG fee and SSSC fee will be paid by us.
We’re committed to creating a workplace culture where all our people feel valued, included, and able to be their best at work, and we recognise the benefits that a diverse workforce with different values, beliefs, experience, and backgrounds brings to us as an organisation.
