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:

describe a range of contested meanings, concepts and perspectives in the domain of social welfare

analyse social welfare practice related to specific ‘target populations'

examine ways of understanding and organising social welfare provision in Australia

demonstrate critical thinking on social welfare practice in relation to social justice, ethics, and power.
