PYB301 Psychology in the Community: Placement

This unit enables you to develop your work-literacy and work-readiness, by providing opportunities to apply psychological knowledge in workplace contexts, supported by activities that promote critical reflection on your learning and workplace practices. In cooperation with the Unit Coordinator, you will arrange a 50 hour work placement. You may nominate prefered placements from a pre-organised list of organisations maintained by the School of Psychology & Counselling, or you may negotiate your own placement at another organisation (unit coordinator approval). You will be supported by on-campus workshops and activities designed to promote critical reflection on your workplace experience. All students considering this unit are strongly encouraged to apply for a Blue Card (suitability for working with children and young people clearance) before the commencement of semester as this clearance is required by most of our host organisations.
