Practitioners working in community and human services engage on a daily basis with people experiencing social problems. This unit combines theory and practice related to working in human service organisations. It focuses on designing, implementing and evaluating action research that aims at promoting change in service practice to better meet the needs of people using those services.
The unit follows the professional practice learning units conducted in first and second year. In the first year students focused on how organisations meet the Disability Standards. In second year they focussed on working closely with individuals. In this third year unit, students will critically examine service practice in relation to the needs of individuals.
