Inter-professional education/learning across social work education provision in Scotland.
This research study was undertaken to map out inter-professional education (also known as inter-professional learning) provision across higher education institutions (HEIs) delivering qualifying social work programmes in Scotland, identify the strengths and weaknesses of those approaches and ascertain the views of those working in the social services regarding the direct impact of such programmes on practice. Online surveys were completed by social work students across Scottish universities, representatives of those delivering inter-profession education/learning (IPE/IPL) and employers. Students and employers were generally satisfied with the type and quality of IPE/IPL offered, which was thought to be well-integrated through qualifying programmes. Provision was clearly articulated and implanted within strategy and course documents. This research found that IPE/IPL undertaken by social workers in training in Scotland was impacting on service delivery. However, it also found that institutional organisation continued to compound difficulties in creating relevant and useful IPE/IPL activity.
