Department of Human Services policy - Police Record Check and Working With Children Check

In accordance with Department of Human Services policy, all students are required to undertake a National Police Record Check prior to clinical placements in each calendar year of their course.

In accordance with the Department of Justice 2007, Working with Children Act 2005, amended 2017, all students are required to undertake a Working with Children Check at the commencement of their course. Students who fail to obtain a Police Record Check and a Working with Children Check prior to the commencement of clinical placement will not be able to undertake clinical placement and this will impede progress in the course.

Students may also be required to declare their immunisation status to satisfy the requirements of health organisations where they will be undertaking their clinical learning experience. A health organisation may refuse to accept a student for placement if the student’s immunisation status is not satisfactory to the health organisation.

Content

Students in the Bachelor of Health Science complete this ‘capstone’ unit, which is designed to assess course outcomes and graduate attributes, at the end of their course. In a small multidisciplinary team, students undertake an applied problem-based project for a client who may be real or imagined. The unit requires students to integrate and synthesise prior knowledge and learning between the Bachelor of Health Science core sequence and their majors, to connect and integrate their learning for use in the real world. They are supported in this by learning about project management, team work and professional communication, including report writing. Projects require self-management, teamwork and independence as learners. The capstone is designed to enhance graduates' university-to-work transition needs (or undergraduate-to-higher-degree needs). The final assessment requires students to produce explicit evidence of their graduate capabilities.

Hurdle requirement

  • Submission of group ‘product’ and group statement of contribution - ungraded
