Ok another question - I know whoever takes me on for a placement is doing me a huge favour, but am I able to say anything like 'I'm mainly looking for a part time placement of 2-3 days a week due to having a young child'? Or should I be letting them state the conditions they want?
You probably should do 3 days if you can for continuity and switch around - one week work Monday - wed the next wed - Fri as you may be with a women's refuge for example and court may be Thursday. You don't want to miss that.

Yeah when I did my course through La Trobe they organised all my placements. They ensured I had a wide variety of experiences and they dealt with insurance etc. I also did contract work as an External Field Educator for the uni myself and there is a lot that goes into planning and running the placements.
But I think the depth and length of OTEN placements is less. So yeah, I agree with Meredith. Contact your lecturer.
