Can I find my own practicum placement?
Students are asked NOT to contact the Partner Organizations listed on the FIFSW website because the Practicum Office has developed partnerships with these agencies. Contravening an organization’s protocol may ultimately jeopardize the FIFSW’s relationship, and this may impact future opportunities for students to complete practicums at this site.
Students who identify an opportunity that is not on our Partner Organization list may contact the Practicum Office to discuss.
It is the responsibility of the Practicum Office to secure practicum opportunities that meet accreditation standards as set out by the Canadian Association for Social Work Education.
