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.
Prior to the implementation of the Project's Demonstration Model, the key themes highlighted by the Practice Audit and Literature Review were used to design two pilot projects, which were run in Local Authority Social Work settings between February and May 2004 (Bruce, 2004). One pilot project was based in Aberdeen City Council's Criminal Justice Service, and another pilot project in Children's Services, Aberdeenshire Council.
Opportunities for interprofessional learning and agency-based practice learning opportunities. This practice audit was carried out as part of the Learning for Effective and Ethical Practice project, funded by the Scottish Institute for Excellence in Social Work Education. The audit examined three different but related areas: integration of learning for practice, opportunities for inter-professional learning and agency-based learning opportunities.
