"I agree- there is a fair amount of duplication between DEV001 and DEV002 as well. This unit is better suited as an elective."

"As I noted in CHCCSM005, the skills demonstrated in these two units are intrinsically linked, so I see no reason why the placement hours could not be concurrent if both are to remain core units in the Diploma of Community Services. I wonder if keeping CHCCSM005 as core and making CHCCSM008 would bring back the more generalist nature of the DipCS?"

"As I noted in CHCCSM005, there are many high quality Community Service organisations that support our students to complete their placement requirements, but do NOT do case management and assessment, or have limited capacity to support students to be actively engaged in this process. The need for these skills to be demonstrated in the workplace without the option of simulation may create a barrier to completion for many students. "
