INTRODUCTION TO YOUR FIELD EDUCATION LEARNING PLAN
•    The Australian Association of Social Work (AASW) Practice Standards 2013 http://www.asn.au/practionerresources/practicestandards have been used, and in some instances adapted, to develop the Practice Standards, Learning Outcomes and Assessment Criteria in this document.

Agreement from all participants on the recommended achievement level, will be sought, but if there is disagreement this will be noted in the report. At the end of the placement the final decision to pass or fail the placement will belong to the relevant university.
