Abstract: This exploratory study on School Social Work(SSW) and School Counselling(SC) Practices seeks to find out the various types and forms of services provided by social workers and counsellors in the Singapore's secondary schools. Five hypothetical practice models were explored in the study against five proposed practice dimensions. This largely qualitative study first used a short preliminary survey which was sent to all secondary schools to find out the extent of school social work and counselling services available. A pilot study was conducted before the eventual 19-item semi-structured interview schedule was used to look into in-depth professional practice and operational issues. Issues of role clarity, practice visibility, practice support, accountability, strengths and limitations are covered to see how the practice has promoted, maintained and impeded the delivery of these services.
