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 beginning practitioner

demonstrate and critically reflect on professional identity, practice skills and practice approaches with clients, colleagues, supervisors and other key stakeholders, and identify learning needs that extend beyond graduation

critically analyse and reflect on the evidence-base for and ways in which social work services are provided in the organisation and wider practice field and how this addresses client needs and enhances social justice

use and critically reflect on social work knowledge, including theoretical and research knowledge, to inform social work practice and policy in a range of settings, and draw on this to inform professional identity and articulate a professional practice framework
