Western Sydney University Social Work Student Placements

Calling all agencies!

• Is there a project, pilot service or some other activity that you have wanted to do for a long time, but had neither the funding or the time to do it?

• Needing fresh ideas and a different perspective?

• Needing evidence to apply for that funding grant but haven’t been able to gather it?

Have you considered a Western Sydney University Social Work student?

Offering placements to our Social Work students not only provides them with valuable learning opportunities, but is also mutually beneficial to your agency and staff.

Students:
1) Are able to do some of those activities or projects you haven’t been able to do, due to time, staffing and funding issues;
2) bring new ideas and insights that you may not have considered before.
3) Live and study in your local areas,
4) Become part of your team and can assist with your existing programs- another pair of hands
5) Add to your own continuing professional development, as they share what they are learning
6) Are tomorrow’s workforce.

Placements are sought in all areas of the Human Services, including working with individuals and families, group work, community development, policy and research areas, dealing with different client groups and backgrounds.
We are currently seeking placements for our Final Year Bachelor of Social Work and Masters of Social Work (qualifying) first and final placements. Placements for all students commence on 11th June - October/November 2019.

Be a part of training the next generation of Social Workers! They could be your future employees!
