The second practicum (of 60 days/480 hours) will enable you to emerge as a confident, capable social work professional.
The practicum prepares you for provisional registration with the Social Worker Registration Board, against the SWRB competencies.
You will make consistent use of skills in communication, engagement, assessment, intervention and evaluation to promote positive outcomes for service users. During the practicum you will use reflection and practice supervision to articulate and critically reflect on your use of practice theory, evidence, and knowledge for practice. You will organise and manage practice accountably working within relevant organisational protocols, and propose ways for the agency to improve service delivery.
You will be able to critically assess the ability of the practice agency to promote the cultural safety of service users and colleagues, and work in partnership with Māori in culturally appropriate and inclusive ways. You are required to complete 6 days face-to-face workshops.
