FW2710 - Supervised Field Placement Experience III

The purpose of this supervised field placement experience is to provide students with experience in administrative practices and procedures at an approved setting in a community-based agency/organization.  Through classroom and individual assessments, instructor(s) will work with students to provide opportunity for a four-week placement to express leadership skills and work independently in an agency that provides administrative experiences such as the following:  financial management, staff and public relations, program development, organization and government structures and functions, and facility operations.  Students 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).
