Practice Education

An investigation into occupational therapy practice education across the UK

There is a growing acknowledgement about the issues that face practice education for occupational therapy and the allied health professions (AHPs) today. Many broad issues are evolving as a result of the ever shifting environments in health and social care. As members and guardians of the profession, we all have a duty to devote our time and expertise to support our students becoming the occupational therapists of the future. 

This resource has been created as the result of a collaborative piece of work led by the Royal College of Occupational Therapists and involving a community of practice extending to the four UK nations. 

We envisage further work to evolve from this starting point and welcome suggestions and inout from people who would like to join this community.  If you are interested, please email
