The Department of Social Work at Monash has a well-developed Supervised Professional Practice program, servicing students undertaking the Social Work degree.

Students complete 1000 hours of supervised professional practice during their degree.

Supervised professional practice is undertaken in a Human Service Organisation under the supervision of a professional and experienced Social Worker.

The purpose of the supervised professional practice program is to enable students to put into practice the social work theory and skills learnt at university.

A number of partnerships have been established by the field education team to offer students exciting learning opportunities in health, legal settings, family violence, education and community services in government and non-government organisations across Australia.

All Social Work field placements are compliant with the Australian Association of Social Worker Education and Accreditation Standards (August 2019) 

Upon enrolment, students will be required to comply with the University’s mandatory immunisation requirements, police and working with children checks in readiness for clinical placements. Failure to hold satisfactory checks may result in students being unable to complete their course.
