Call for Practice Placement Teachers January 2021

Are you interested in taking a student on placement in January 2021? 

Do you have concerns about doing so, given the COVID-19 pandemic?

Register now for UCD's Zoom Q & A session on Thursday the 15th of October at 10am.

Paula Slavin, Placement Allocations Manager and Muireann Ní Raghallaigh, Director of Professional Practice will be joined by three practice teachers - Muireann O Regan, Ruth Mc Laughlin and Emer Coyne - to discuss how practice teachers rose to the challenge of practice teaching in Summer 2020 and how the innovative responses can again be used in January 2021 to ensure that all students have placements. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.

To register please email (opens in a new window)socialworkplacements@ucd.ie with 'Zoom Seminar' in the subject line.

We are urgently seeking practice teachers for January 2021. Recruiting is always a challenge but this is even more so the case this year due to COVID 19. In order to ensure that we have a sufficient number of graduates to meet the demands of the workforce we urge you to consider taking a student. If you wish to discuss this further please contact Paula Slavin on 087 4321435 or (opens in a new window)paula.slavin@ucd.ie
