RCSLT Practice Based Learning guidelines 2021 state:
The expectation of the RCSLT is that every SLT should offer a minimum of 25 days of practice-based learning per year per whole time equivalent (WTE) (pro rata). The commitment to 25 days of practice education relates to time spent overseeing a student’s learning in the workplace. The practice educator does not need to be present with the student at all times. Where appropriate, students can work independently with clients, following planning with their practice educator and with opportunity to debrief afterwards.
All areas of speech and language therapy practice are suitable for student practice-based learning, and should offer practice placements to all years of students. There are no SLT roles that are considered too specialist, or too confidential, to support student learning.
Practice educator training is required before educators take responsibility for a student’s practice-based learning.
