Year 4

During Years 4 and 5 students undertake field education in addition to classwork. Classwork includes the study of how the interaction of personal and professional values and ethics relates to social work and social policy. It also provides a framework of knowledge and skills to enable students to analyse and develop theories and research. The starting points for classwork learning are typical issues and debates encountered by professional social workers, either in the contexts of policy and practice, or in their dealings with particular social or cultural groups. These are brought together in Issue Based Learning (IBL) units. The field-education program provides a practice context for this learning.
