Bachelor and Masters of Social Work Alumni - can you help support the professionals of tomorrow?

Social Work Mentoring

Are you working in a community, health, education, government or not for profit organisation? Do you work in private practice? Would you have time to support a student in their learning? Want to 'give back' to UTAS whilst enhancing your own skills?

The School of Sociology & Social Work are in the midst of preparing for 2018 Fieldwork placements. During this time, students undertake a 500 hour work placement, (supervised by a qualified social worker with minimum 2 years practice experience), learning and integrating the theory from the classroom into practice. The success of this fieldwork relies on the support of agencies and social workers, and we are currently looking to establish new connections to increase our offering in this space.

If you are you based in Tasmania, and could:

  • Support a student in your organisation to undertake their fieldwork placement, or
  • Provide external weekly clinical supervision of 1.5hr to a student on fieldwork placement, or
  • Act as a liaison officer, visiting students x2 throughout their placement to monitor their progress and learning

Please contact us at socialwork.fieldeducation@utas.edu.au to express your interest and obtain further information.
