For Current Field Instructors
Year 2/Advanced Standing Interview and Practicum Matching Schedule
Tuesday April 26, 2016 @ 9 a.m. Practicum Administration System (PAS) opens for YEAR II/Advanced Standing students to view practicum opportunities.
Friday May 6, 2016 @ noon The PAS opens for the cohort to view interview matches (0, 1, 2). Students matched with 1 or 2 interviews may initiate contact with field instructor(s). Field instructors also view who is matched for interviews. Students still requiring 1 or 2 interviews continue to revisit the PAS.
Monday May 9- Friday June 17, 2016 Interviews occur.
Monday June 20, 2016 @ 8:59 a.m. Deadline for field instructors to submit interview responses on the PAS. We encourage you to “accept” both students. Only one student will be matched with you, but indicating you would “accept” either student increases the likelihood of a match. Please contact the Practicum Office at any time if you have a practicum to offer.
Friday June 24, 2016 PAS opens for students and field instructors to view practicum match.
June – September 2016 Practicum Office works with students who remain unmatched.
Wednesday September 14, 2016 First day of practicum.

Risk Reduction and Student Safety
Student safety is of paramount concern. The Checklist I Practicum Safety and Learning and Checklist II Practicum Learning and Reflection have been developed to assist the field instructor and student with key components for the practicum.
Professor Marion Bogo has developed a 13 ½ minute video for Year 1 Field Instructors to explain the relationship between the first semester courses, Elements in Social Work and Social Work Laboratory, and Practicum I. The video is available at https://media.library.utoronto.ca/play.php?jbRrmfNib7y5&id=22838&access=public.
Bridging Class and Practicum_ Competencies complements the video.
