This course is the third of six professional experience practice courses in the Bachelor of Speech Pathology (Hons) program which develops and contextualises the Professional Standards for Speech Pathologists including professional conduct, reflective practice, life-long learning and practice skills. This course also provides students with an opportunity to develop and demonstrate competency across the lifespan with a focus on working with adults including assessment, analysis and interpretation, planning, and implementation of person, family and community-centred, evidencebased, culturally safe and responsive services and interventions in professional practice. Specifically, students will explore increasingly complex adult case scenarios, where a higher level of integration and application of knowledge is required. Students will progress towards being more independent in their professional practice knowledge and its application, as well as further developing their identity and competence as a Speech Pathologist. The course will provide a minimum of 160 hours (four weeks at 40 hours/week) of supervised professional experience practice placement (PEP) with flexible support from the university.

Note: Due to the Job-ready Graduates Package new funding clusters and contribution amounts will take effect in the 2021 academic year. Grandfathering arrangements will be in place for students who would see an increase in their contribution amounts. Under these arrangements, students who commenced their course of study before 1 January 2021 facing increased student contribution amounts for a unit, will instead have their student contribution and Australian Government contribution amounts remain as they were under the previous arrangements (with existing rates being indexed by CPI each year). If continuing students are enrolled in units that will see their student contribution amount lowered, their student contributions will be the lowered amount
