These include the Police Check Policy and Procedures, Infectious Disease Policy, Code of Conduct, and Safetyin Practice Agreement. Students who do not comply with these policies will not be placed or will be removed from placements and therefore will not be able to complete this unit. Students who have not complied or are unsure of the policies should seek guidance from the School.

This unit uses group work and late enrolment may affect your ability to participate actively.
