Bachelor and Masters of Social Work alumni - help support the professionals of tomorrow

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 Social Sciences have commenced preparation for 2019 Field Education placements.  As part of their course, students undertake a minimum 500hour placement, learning and integrating the theory from the classroom into practice.  The success of the placement relies on the support of agencies and social worker practitioners, and we are currently looking to establish new connections to increase our offering in this space.

We would love to hear from you if you are based in Tasmania, have a minimum 2 years practice experience and could:

  • Support a student in your organisation to undertake their field education placement, or
  • Provide external weekly clinical supervision of 1.5hr to a student on 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.
