A Practical Guide For Students and Graduating Social Workers

Developed by the South Australian AASW Branch, this Handbook is intended for Social Work students and new graduates of Australia. Provided within this handbook are documents which provide an overview of the student / employment transition process of those who are entering Social Work. The Handbook then progresses readers through the key tasks involved in preparation for professional employment and information on how to manage self-care along the way. In the final chapters this Handbook provides information on accessing the Australian Social Work job market. Click here to access 'A Practical Guide for Students and Graduating Social Workers'
