Social Education

Practice Placements

Practice placements are an important part of the Social Education course and are integrated into the whole of the curriculum. International students are able to get a practice placement through UCL.

The aims of a practice placement are: to give you the opportunity to participate in various kinds of social education work; to learn how to carry out social educational tasks; and to tackle problem situations in a professional manner, alone and in cooperation with the staff of the practice placement institution.

‘Competence goals’ have been laid down for practice placements, describing what the outcomes of a practice placement period are meant to be. A test is held after each practice placement period, to ensure that the outcomes are profitable and relevant to you.

Social Education students typically do practice placements in the following places:

  • kindergartens
  • day nurseries
  • schools
  • after-school clubs (SFO)
  • residential care homes
  • 24-hour care centres
  • group homes
  • day centres
