SOWK6231 (Field Placement)

Field placement II

Field work placement II serves as a transition practicum for student social workers to move towards becoming a full-fledged social worker. Students are trained to be responsible, able to cope with pressure and crisis, as well as to work independently. They should be aware of their strengths and weaknesses, and be ready to make continuous efforts to further develop in professional competence after graduation. For professional accreditation, the Social Workers? Registration Board requires the fulfillment of 800 placement hours plus 100 hours for placement preparation. Students taking this course have to fulfill at least 450 placement hours. Successful completion of SOWK6225 is a pre-requisite to this course.
