Abstract

Social work field education focuses on preparing students for professional practice. It relies on experienced social workers facilitating the socialisation of social work students into the profession. Generally this socialisation is assumed to take place through an apprenticeship-type model where students are placed to work alongside experienced social workers. However, providing placement opportunities for social work students with social work qualified supervisors on site is becoming more difficult. There is an increase in placements with offsite supervision, where qualified social workers situated outside the placement organisations provide the social work supervision additional to supervision provided internally in the organisations. Previous research has illuminated some of the context of off-site supervision, but little is known about external supervisors' experience of supporting social work students on placement.
