Professional accreditation

The Bachelor of Human Services is undergoing accreditation with the Australian Community Workers Association (ACWA).

Professional recognition - Counselling major: Graduates who have completed all eight units within the Counselling major, and who have successfully completed one counselling field placement, will be eligible for Level 1 membership with the Australian Counselling Association. As these graduates will have completed a minimum of 400 hours of placement in total, they are also eligible to apply for ACWA accreditation.

Attendance recommendations - Counselling major: Students aiming to become professional counsellors and/or join professional counselling associations, are strongly recommended to attend residential schools for all of the following courses: CDS1001 Human Relations and Communications, CDS1002 Counselling Skills, CDS3001 Assessment and Report Writing in Counselling, CDS3002 Counselling Theory and Practice, CDS3004 Counselling Theory and Practice 2 and CDS3005 Counselling Theory and Practice 3.
