Field Education 2A - SCWK4005

Year - 2020

This unit is jointly assessed with SCWK4006 or SCWK4007. This is the first part of a full time field education practicum of 80 days. In negotiation with the field educator, 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. Those students on placement outside the Sydney metropolitan area participate in online classes and make a presentation at the end of placement.

2-hr lecture and 3-hr pre-placement class, 4x2-hr tutorials and 2x 3-hr tutorials/fortnight

4x500wd class preparation questions and 1500wd workshop paper and 4,500wd field education portfolio (pass/fail) and 80 day placement (pass/fail).
