Most agencies now require students to undergo a police check before they will accept a student placement.  Please complete a Police Vetting form and bring it with you to your interview if it has not already been submitted.  The consent authorises the New Zealand Police to vet your criminal history and to provide the results of that process to the School of Health & Social Services Studies at Massey University.  They will also check a separate Police database to see if they have any record of any behaviour of a violent or sexual nature which has been committed by you but which does not result in a criminal conviction.

 The Police will provide a copy of the results of the vetting procedure, which may include a copy of any criminal record that you have, to the School of Health & Social Services.  We will provide that information to placement agencies before you are placed with them.

The School of Health & Social Services will not retain the results of your police vetting beyond the end of the relevant academic year.

If there are any issues in your personal or family history that may effect your placement please make them known to us.  These issues may include mental health, other health concerns, domestic violence, sexual or physical abuse and addictions (if you have any concerns about confidentiality, please discuss).

List any previous SW experience:

Paper co-ordinators will notify students when the field education/student interviews are starting.  A timetable will be placed on the office door of the Field Education Co-ordinator on which you can indicate a convenient time.
