Practitioners may participate in a fieldwork educator programme with other practitioners. Alternatively they may elect to work independently and prepare a portfolio which is then assessed by the university to determine the practitioner's ability to educate students. Accreditation of fieldwork placements and fieldwork educators There is continuing professional debate about whether fieldwork placements or fieldwork educators should be accredited, or both. There are arguments for both systems. One line of thought is that the context in which fieldwork education is provided is important and that an accreditation process should examine the fieldwork environment and not just the practitioners involved.

Numbers of students needing placements have increased at a time when organizational changes within the health and social care system have been taking place. For instance, large psychiatric hospitals which formerly provided a significant number of student placements at anyone time, have been closing.
