The specialised practicum builds on the learning experience of the foundational practicum. Students work with specialised client groups and have more opportunities for supervised practice. Students learn about the need for higher levels of service customisation relevant to specialised groups. They will gain an appreciation for the professional challenges of working within resource constraints, with organisational demands and sometimes political sensitivities. Students can apply their knowledge and skills to work across disciplinary lines and manage the expectations of multiple stakeholders. Students will learn about organisational culture and how they can influence change. They will also exercise their skills in planning for their own professional development and learning.
