Partners in learning

As part of Outcare’s commitment to fostering young practitioners and developing the skills and knowledge they will need when choosing to work in the justice sector Outcare accepts student placements from tertiary and graduate institutions. While we have limited resources available, where we are able, we welcome student placements through the various Western Australian Institutions including Edith Cowan University, Curtin University, Notre Dame along to name a few.

Outcare is also keen to support emerging research and has in the past year supported ten student study placements whose studies range from Certificates in Community Studies to Social Work and Criminology.

On Friday, 9 March 2018, ECU held its annual Prize Giving Ceremony for the School of Arts and Humanities.

The Outcare Prize for Academic Excellence in Case Management was awarded to Candice Craig for her outstanding academic achievement. Paul McMullan presented the award that includes $250 and a donation to the value of $250 to the recipient’s nominated charity.

The annual Outcare Prize aims to showcase new practitioners and encourage best practice in the field.
