Consider the theories and models of practice that you have based your rationale on .

I have continued to be sensitive to any cultural needs that

have arisen among those I engage with (particularly tangata
whenua) on placement and have a deep-seated respect for
the role of culture in many peoples lives. I will continue to
espouse these qualities as I move into professional practice.
I believe the same fundamental principles of respect and
cultural sensitivity that I strive to practise as I engage with
tangata whenua can be universally applied to any culture or
Again, while not yet perfect, I have a strongly inclusive
attitude that does not prejudice any client based on factors
such as, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic
status, etc.
I feel I have been able to remain true to my values of social
justice and equality for all as I have navigated my way
through various scenarios while on placement.
I hope that I have made a positive impression on both
students and teaching staff. During my time at SSTS I
strived to promote the values of goal setting, optimism,

students. For example, one girl through participating in my
music programme made significant gains in confidence
which positively affected her in other learning environments.
I was able to practice with increasing professionalism as I
found the appropriate balance between approachability and
a overtly professional demeanour.
Through my efforts as highlighted above, I was able to settle
into my role as a social worker. I have derived a significant
boost in confidence in working with youth of this age group
which is of immense value as I contemplate starting a new
job where I will work with youth of a similar demographic.
