Field Placement Program

Centennial College’s Community Services Field Placement Program provides students with an enhanced learning experience through engagement with community organizations. Field placements encourage practical application of classroom learning in real world contexts, empowering students to make connections between theory and practice while developing essential employability skills under the guidance of a field supervisor. Students from our Social Service Worker, Addictions and Mental Health and Community Development programs are well-trained in interpersonal skills, counseling, group facilitation, and case management and are eager to work with your agency and the communities you serve. We are currently seeking agency partners who can provide a placement opportunity for one or more of our students in the Winter 2021 semester, which is from January 18th – April 16th 2021. Students are in their field placement course 4 days a week (Tues-Friday), with opportunity to work face-to-face or virtually. We are extremely flexible in working with you to customize placement according to the capacity of your agency, in providing students 16-32 hours of unpaid work a week.
