Part 2 of two units comprising the first social work placement. Engages students in 500 hours (across Social Work Placement Ia and Ib) of supervised social work practice in a human service organisation. Develops professional skills, knowledge and values based on the Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW) practice standards for social work. Transfers learning gained from other units in the course to practice in a real organisation.

2. Communicating effectively with clients, colleagues and stakeholders.
3. Evaluating one's own practice using critical reflection and responding to feedback.
4. Applying social work knowledge to real world situations.
5. Developing a practice framework using social work knowledge.
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
