The professional practice unit is assessed with theoretical and practical components. You must demonstrate the knowledge and skills you have developed during the placement by completing investigative and reflective assessment tasks.
You will submit a journal of two to three entries for assessment that details your experiences, and explore elements of the placement agency and report your findings.
In your final year, you will complete a research project for the placement organisation. The research project may be a:
- youth consultation
- youth needs analysis
- program evaluation.
As each placement is unique, you must negotiate tasks, responsibilities and timelines with your agency supervisor and undertake regular supervision to reflect on the placement.
