This is the fifth of seven professional practice units in the Bachelor of Speech Pathology that provides direct evidence of competencies required by Speech Pathology Australia for entry into the profession. This unit provides students with the opportunity to consolidate, assimilate and transfer previous learning in an extended period of professional practice experience across one or more of the Speech Pathology Australia range of practice areas of speech, language, voice, fluency, swallowing, and multimodal communication. In this unit students develop at least intermediate level competency in speech pathology practice during placement as well as during supplementary activities and tasks.

Counselling and interviewing skills will be consolidated to equip students for active and sensitive engagement with all stakeholders. Students will continue to build their professional portfolio as a basis for ongoing reflection and demonstration of evidence against the Competency based Occupational Standards for Speech Pathologists (CBOS) and will progress their reflective skills to further transform their clinical identity and professional skill-set.
