Welcome to the support site for practice educators in Occupational Therapy.

The section for OT mentors is currently being constructed, apologies for any inconvenience. Please check again soon.



About us

This website is designed for practice educators that support occupational therapy students from London South Bank University. Practice education is a key component of delivering courses for occupational therapists and therefore a high priority for the School. Practice placements account for a third of all courses leading to registration as an occupational therapist.

The information on this website aims to support practice educators supervising students learning in practice. On this site there is information about the programmes students are studying, practice learning, assessing students on placement as well as placement documents.


The occupational therapy programme offers preparation of practice educators as well as continual support through placement briefings and refresher days. We also value our relationships with our placement providers and have two placement coordinators and managers’ meetings each year. The dates for all our practice educators preparation and meetings are available on this site.

Ensuring quality learning environments for students is an important part of the partnership between the School of Health and Social Care and our practice placement providers. Information about quality monitoring procedures is available on this site.
