To enable students to develop specialised social work practice skills in a practice setting.
Students will undertake supervised placement where they will develop specialised practice skills through the application of theory to a particular practice context. Students will utilise their skills as a reflexive practitioner to develop cognitive and technical skills in ethical reflection and decision making, professional relationship building, social work supervision and client engagement, intervention planning, implementation and evaluation. Students will examine the notion of social work as change agent at the individual and broader systemic level.
Students are required to have undertaken a criminal history screening through the Department of Families and Communities and to have completed a 1 day Child Safe Environments Course. Some placements may require students to hold a current drivers licence and recognised First Aid Certificate.
