The School of Arts and Humanities offers students professional placement experiences, in various services and organisations.
Students undertake placements across a range of fields of practice, working with a diversity of populations and using numerous practice approaches. We work with dozens of agencies every semester, including government (federal, state, local), non-government and not-for-profit organisations. There is no set ‘list’ of placement organisations, although there are agencies that regularly host student placements.
Professional Placement courses are offered throughout our programs and placements take place across a number of weeks and months. For more information on professional placements please refer to the program structure and courses available.
The aim is for students to develop their experience in a counselling role ready to practice with individuals, couples and families, and groups.
Students will explore their professional development needs and prepare for future work through a process of individual needs assessment, flexible self-directed learning, reflective practice and the opportunity to apply theoretical concepts in their role as a children and family services worker.
Students are placed in organisational settings, where they practice and learn social work under the supervision of a qualified social worker.
Placement is an opportunity for students to learn, develop and extend the skills required to practice as a professional youth worker.
