"This elective needs more development as a Rural specialisation. Cost burdens and financial incentives (aimed at mitigating climate risks) across the rural sector are very subjective; additionally climate change policies are not yet legislated, hence this unit could be deemed as very subjective and not evidence based, and or underpinned with real and actual financial data."

"Apply basic concepts of small business to financial counselling is a specialty unit, and could be included in the elective units as a stand-alone elective/ specialty unit. Additionally, given the impartiality of FC work, undertaking "advocacy" is an important aspect of work and perhaps could be included into a core unit, or incorporated into CHCFIN007."

"A suggestion for consideration - The Qualification reflects the role of financial counsellors working in three specialty contexts: - Generalist Financial Counselling - Rural Financial Counselling - Small Business Financial Counselling. Although a FC role may intersect another specialty, all three roles are specialists in their own scope of practice."
