The unit is a structured educational program which provides students with the opportunity to undertake a 14 week field education placement. The placement is undertaken in an organisational or community setting under the supervision of a professional and experienced Social Worker. Placement starts on the 16 September and finishes on the 20 December 2013.


This is the final opportunity for Supervised Professional Practice before qualifying as a social worker. The expectation is that students will refine, expand and consolidate the competency that they achieved in their first placement and that by completion of final placement will be able to practise as an independent, responsible and reflective Social Work practitioner.


While on placement for 70 days, students are required to complete:
Learning Agreement and Assessment Report
Mid Placement oral presentation
Case study or report of 1500 words
Critical learning analysis of 1500 words

This unit is pass grade only (PGO).
