Service user and carer assessment of social work students

Whilst the involvement of service users and carers in social work student assessments has significantly changed the education of social work students in the United Kingdom (UK), it is a practice that has not been adopted internationally. The chapter makes the case for service user and carer involvement in students’ assessments at international level. It discusses the policy and the legal context for service user and carer involvement in students’ assessments, and what service users and carers look for when assessing students. It offers some practical suggestions on how institutions could set up service user and carer involvement in students’ assessments.
