SWB316 Social Work Field Education 1A

Social work students are required to demonstrate proficiency in applying knowledge and skills in complex real world situations. To integrate the theoretical knowledge obtained in the course, students are required to successfully complete two field education practicums of 500 hours each. This first 500 hour practicum provides the opportunity to develop and demonstrate skills, knowledge and professional attributes for safe, high quality and ethical practice in accordance with the AASW Practice Standards and Code of Ethics. The combined SWB316/317 unit provides students with real world opportunities to critically apply consolidated knowledge and skills gained through the course. This designated unit provides a professionally supervised social work experience. Practicum tasks and responsibilities are completed under the guidance and direction of a qualified field educator and supported through university integration seminars.
