This 60 day (480 hours) practicum will enable learners to develop professional practice skills under professional supervision. Learners will apply skills in communication, engagement, and assessment to promote positive outcomes for individuals, groups or communities and will manage practice safely and accountably working within relevant organisational protocols. Learners will develop skills in professional report writing and maintain accurate records assuring client confidentiality and privacy, and making referrals to other agencies as appropriate. During the practicum they will use reflection and practice supervision to articulate and reflect on practice theory, evidence, and knowledge for practice. They will be able to identify the legislative framework underpinning practice situations and discuss associated ethical issues. The practicum block is preceded by a compulsory five-day practice skills workshop
