Practice teaching and learning are critical elements in the initial professional education of social workers, yet they are fraught with pressures and suffer from shortages in both placements and practice teachers. This paper considers some of the factors that influence social workers to become practice teachers and undertake the Practice Teaching Award (PTA) and those that affect the likelihood of them continuing as practice teachers. Some of the findings of a small-scale study of practice teachers are presented and the implications for the development of practice learning and teaching are explored.
