AbstractCollaboration is a well-established and fundamental practice in social work and social work field education. Field education practice critically relies on collaboration as an organising strategy between industry and universities for providing student placements and responding to current pressures. Collaboration enables timely, flexible and effective responsiveness to achieve shared goals. This chapter explores the use of collaboration in field education. Drawing on their experience of successful completion of four innovative, collaborative field education projects, the authors outline and discuss different ways of thinking about collaboration in field education in light of the current competitive environment.
