National Field Education Research Project

National Field Education Research Project

This national survey was undertaken during 2015/ 2016 to provide an overview of how field education is currently delivered in Australia and what field education staff perceived as challenges in field education. The results will provide important benchmarks for the current state of social work field education in Australia and data that can be used for further research, policy development and practice.
