The Experience of Practice Teaching in Ireland Report 2023
Dr. Niamh Murphy worked with NPTSWI to research the experiences of practice teachers supervising students during the academic year September 2022 to May 2023. The research findings capture the opportunities and barriers to practice teaching in social work that exists at this time in Ireland.
This research data was accomplished through a national survey with practice teachers working with the six universities offering social work education: Atlantic Technological University, Maynooth University; Trinity College Dublin, University College Cork, University College Dublin and University of Galway.
We would like to formally acknowledge and thank practice teachers who responded to our survey and shared their experiences, in doing so they have ensured that the voices of social work practice teachers are included in the national conversation around social work education and practice placements.
Ethical approval for this research was obtained from the Social Research Ethics Committee (SREC) at University College Cork.
