This chapter provides an historical account of the gaps that have occurred in the provision nationally in the UK for training practice educators. It makes the case for robust practice educator standards for positive practice outcomes. The chapter provides a critically reflective account of the modules developed in one institution for training practice educators, their location within a wider Masters programme and their adaptation in response to political and administrative drivers. It illustrates the ability to maintain core values in training those with the responsibility for teaching and assessing emerging professionals in practice. Crucially, the modules described are accessed by a range of practice educators from different disciplines alongside service users who themselves support professional education. The modules focus on criticality, organisational theory, education issues, well-being, stress and self-care. Written from a social work perspective, this chapter is equally relevant for other disciplines that include occupational therapy, physiotherapy, nursing, teaching and medicine.
