Posted on September 2, 2021

Start date: 24th January 2022
Estimated end date: BSW – 30th June 2022, MSWQ – 30th May 2022
Number of hours of placement: 400 hours
Duration: 4-weeks full time, followed by Monday to Wednesday attendance until the completion of 400 hours for the BSW students and 4 weeks’ full time for the MSWQ students followed by 4 days a week attendance.

Our students are seeking to learn skills and knowledge in the practice areas of working with individuals and families, group work, community work, human services, research, social action and social policy, to name a few.

Please find attached the expression of interest form to complete and return by 1st October 2021.

Please note that social work students require supervision from a qualified social worker, where this is not available we can arrange an external social work supervisor to conduct the supervision, so please be sure to indicate if there are qualified social workers at your agency or if we need to allocate externally.

If you have any further questions or would like to discuss placement opportunities, please do not hesitate to contact me via email.

I sincerely thank you for your support and look forward to working together.

Kind Regards,

Vicky Ganas| Social Work Field Education Co-ordinator
