Tips for getting the most out of placements
No matter what it’s called - fieldwork, practicum or work placement – it is one of the most valuable experiences you can have while studying. It is an opportunity to put theory into practice and practice into an organisational context; all while being guided and supervised by an experienced practitioner. Placements are the link between theory and employment. Done well, fieldwork will boost your confidence and ensure a smooth transition to a post-study career.

To help students make the most of this experience we have put together our tips on how to prepare for fieldwork, bring the right attitude and make it work for you, even after it’s over.

Read our advice in full here.

Help us get the word out about 'dodgy' community services courses
Our brand new information sharing campaign has begun to help potential students make informed choices before they enrol in a new course and commit themselves to large amounts of debt.

Cheap and quick courses can be tempting but logic dictates that corners are being cut somewhere. Unfortunately this often means students either don't get the support they need to excel or they graduate without the requisite skills for work in the sector.

We're kicking off with a blog post that addresses what a community services course should provide along with suggestions for further research. We hope you will join us in sharing it widely. Read more.
