SOWK13002 Field Education and Fieldwork I

Course Description

This is the first of two courses related to the practice of social work in situ. The fieldwork component requires the student to complete seventy days of on-site/agency based interactions and learning tasks supervised by an approved Social Worker. The student, having mastered the interpersonal skills and the further family and group skills, will, in this placement, need to identify learning goals which continue to synthesise management, social policy and health in order to develop, articulate, and engage in complex intervention strategies. Practice based and personal reflection will be emphasised to encourage students to undertake responsibility for their actions and emerging professional identity. The course integrates with Social Work Theory & Practice III.
