SOCIAL WORK FIELD EDUCATION 2 (MSWPG7208)

Students will participate in a 70 day Social Work Field Education placement which will facilitate the integration of theory, practice and research in an agency context. As this is the second Field Education placement, students will be expected to develop their understanding and practice regarding Social Work values, ethics, roles and responsibilities of Social Workers in the community. The focus of this second Field Education placement is generally to extend skills and knowledge in macro practice, in particular in areas of research, specific project development or implementation, community development or social policy. Some students may have the opportunity to further expand their direct practice skills to an advanced level. Students will be expected to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to enter the field as an entry level qualified Social Worker, and have some experience in both direct practice and macro practice. Students will extend their knowledge and skills required for professional practice as Social Workers in this setting and utilise appropriate intervention strategies under supervision. An individual interview prior to Fieldwork Education placement, as well as a series of four integrative seminars (18 hours) will assist and support students throughout this process, and provide opportunities for reflective practice, shared learning and mutual support.
