1 hour per week + 200 hours field work, odd years.
Students enrol in first semester and the field work and assessments are undertaken over the year.
This subject will enable students to gain the most from their supervised field experience appointment. Students will be taught about practical issues related to pastoral care in congregational and other ministry settings and learn to apply these skills to their own ministry contexts. Please note that students engaging in field work require a Working With Children Check.
