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:

critically reflect on the role of social work in organisations and interdisciplinary teams, including the potential of supervision and leadership

draw upon multiple organisational theory to analyse human service organisations and the scope for social workers to contribute to organisational change
