Learning outcomes

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.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

form, maintain and end professional and ethical social work relationships with clients, colleagues and supervisors in a human service organisation at the level of a developing practitioner

demonstrate and critically reflect on effective engagement, communication and practice skills and intervention approaches with clients, colleagues, supervisors and other key stakeholders

critically analyse and reflect on the organisation, its location within wider social systems, and its relationship with other organisations, such as auspicing bodies and funding agencies and implications for the role of social work and delivery of social work services to clients

critically analyse the ways in which a social work theory is applied and social work service is provided within the organisation to respond to client needs and enhance social justice and draw on this to inform practice
