Field Education 1 - SCWK3005

Year - 2020

This unit includes a compulsory, full time field education practicum of 60 days as well as class based learning. In negotiation with their field educators, students produce a learning plan that sets out what they expect to learn, how this learning will happen and how, with their field educator, they will monitor and evaluate their learning. In addition, students attend fortnightly placement classes and peer support and accountability groups. These provide a forum in which to explore issues concerning the integration of practice and theory, as well as opportunities for support and consultation with other students and social work staff. Written assignments and oral presentations allow students to demonstrate their placement learning.
