An update from the Field Education Unit

The Field Education Unit is in the midst of placing students for the May-August Placements for all our Master Social Work Students.

We rely on our trusted partners in the field who provide us with great placements for our students every year and we welcome some new partners for the first time this year. While the vast majority of our students are placed in and around Melbourne we have a small group in Shepparton this year and also some placements in Alice Springs and Darwin where we have developed some longstanding partnerships. We also have a small number of students undertaking international placements through partner university arrangements.

We are holding our annual Field Educators workshop on Tuesday 9th May, at the University of Melbourne in Parkville. The Workshop is for Supervisors (including Task Supervisors) to brush up on practice and hear about developments in Field Education. If you are planning to come along, please save the date and we will confirm details shortly.

If you are interested in supervising a student this year or have any questions, please feel free to contact Nicole Hill or Lis de Vries at the Field Education Unit on or phone 9035 6719.
