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 effective engagement, communication, practice skills, and intervention approaches with clients, colleagues, supervisors and other key stakeholders, across a range of interdisciplinary settings

analyse 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

demonstrate the capacity for critical thinking and analysis in relation to one's own research project and relevance to social work theory and practice

use and critically reflect on social work knowledge, including theoretical and research knowledge, to inform social work identity, practice and policy change, and draw on this to develop a multi-faceted practice framework

engage in professional supervision to increase learning about social work practice, evaluation and research, and identify learning needs that extend beyond graduation
