Published on 1 Apr 2005

Between November 2003 and July 2005, the Scottish Institute for Excellence in Social Work Education commissioned The Universities of Edinburgh, Dundee and The Robert Gordon University to undertake a study of Learning for Effective and Ethical Practice (LEEP), the main purpose of which was as follows: To improve radically the quality, quantity, range, relevance, inter-professionality and management of practice learning opportunities for the new social work honours degree. Each project examined a related, but different, topic:

  1. The integration of learning for practice was undertaken by the University of Edinburgh, in partnership with Glasgow Caledonian University.
  2. Inter-professional learning opportunities were examined by the University of Dundee, in partnership with Paisley University and the Open University.
  3. Agency based practice learning was the focus of the Robert Gordon University project.
