Social work students in Aotearoa along with many other countries undergo 120 hours of unpaid placement work as part of their qualifications. 

During this time, many students experience financial and material hardship, juggling placement work with paid work or other commitments.

In a recently published paper, social workers discuss the conditions and offer possible solutions. Wire host Castor spoke to one of the paper’s authors, the University of Auckland’s professor Liz Beddoe, about the paper and how these issues affect social work students.
