The aim of this study was to examine Social Work students’ reflections; concerning the impact their placement and tutoring during placement have had on their development of professional knowledge. The main questions in this study have been; in what degree do the Social Work students, from Gothenburg-, Stockholm- and Umeå University, think they have developed professional knowledge during their placement and the importance of tutoring during the placement. The research was conducted with an online questionnaire that was distributed to the participating universities, who transmitted it to their Social Work students in their final year of study. The questionnaire contained questions where the Social Work students were to grade their perceived knowledge status concerning six different knowledge types that was based on a theory by Nygren (2004). A total of 212 Social Work students replied. The results showed that from the participating students’ perspective the majority of them had developed professional knowledge, despite the fact that the majority also wanted more placements. Tutoring during the placement was also found to have a strong connection to the students’ reflections concerning their placement and their development of professional knowledge. (Less)
