FW2711 - Supervised Field Placement Experience IV
The purpose of this final supervised field placement is to provide second-year students the experience in administrative practices and procedures at an approved setting in a community-based agency/organization. Through classroom and individual assessments, the instructor will work with students to provide opportunity for a four-week placement to express leadership skills and work independently in an agency that may provide the following administrative experiences: financial management, staff and public relations, program development, organizational administration and facility management and operations. Students will be expected to show a high level of management and leadership skills throughout this placement and work independently throughout the four-week placement. Students will review previous placement experiences, types of placement and placement documentation issues and concerns. Students may be placed in a variety of community agencies such as long-term care facilities, hospitals, youth-serving agencies, government, provincial sport and recreation departments and municipal recreation departments. The instructor supervises and evaluates the student’s progress in conjunction with a field supervisor (who is normally an employee in the placement agency).
