Why be a Field Instructor?
The Practicum, or Field Education, is one of the most important elements in the education of future social workers. It’s where Master of Social Work students apply their in-class knowledge to practice and develop important skills, in real-world settings.
Field Instructors play a vital role in our students’ education and training. As experienced social workers, they oversee and guide our students in the provision of services to a variety of clients, organizations and communities.
