Course Description

After the completion of the social service worker core curriculum, students integrate and apply the knowledge, values, and skills they gained in the program during a five-week, full-time block placement in a social service agency setting. The practicum provides students with the opportunity to work under the supervision of an agency field supervisor in order to learn how the needs of a particular client population are met by a specific agency. Students develop deeper professional relationships with agency staff and clients and take greater responsibility for carrying out specific social service functions at their assigned agency.

Note: Practicum placements are not guaranteed. Students who have not successfully completed the core courses of the Diploma in Social Service Worker will not be permitted to undertake the practicum.

Students will receive credit for only one of SSRV 1230 and 1233; or 1231.

Registration in this course is restricted to students admitted to the Certificate in Social Service Worker.

Prerequisite(s): A minimum "C-" grade in SSRV 1131 and 1230 (SSRV 1230 may be taken concurrently).
