Field Education: Creating Successful Placements introduces students to the experiences of those involved in social work field education placements in a variety of settings, including rural and international placements. The book identifies key processes and frameworks and how these can be used in practice.

Understanding what makes a successful placement is critical to informing the planning, development and ongoing coordination of field education, and by extension ensuring that social work graduates have high quality learning experiences. Field Education: Creating Successful Placements looks at what makes a successful placement from four different perspectives - lecturer, field educator, laision person and student - helping to better prepare students for the rigours of social work and human services work. It encourages integrating theory with practice and provides an insight into the diverse organisations and practitioners involved in Field Education.
