Helen Fruin is a Senior Lecturer in social work and a registered social worker. She worked in adult services prior to working as an independent practice educator and placement development consultant.

Bridget, Julie, Vicky, Bex and Helen will present their research project, which used visual imagery to explore social work students’ perceptions of practice learning (placements). We explored the impact of the drawings produced on practice educators and University tutors.

The images depict students’ awareness of power and feeling judged, a lack of diversity within social work and a disconnection between university teaching and practice learning.
