The Placement Planning Form collects detailed information about the placement opportunity at an agency. This form provides the Field Office with information needed to build your opportunity into our field database and helps students understand what learning opportunities and experiences will be available at your agency.
The Experiential Learning Agreement outlines our mutual obligations in providing field education and formalizes the partnership between an agency and Wilfrid Laurier University. For FSW students to complete their field placement at an agency, an Experiential Learning Agreement needs to be executed.
The Pre-Placement Safety Review and Declaration is used to document the health and safety instruction provided to the student prior to exposure to hazards in the workplace. The Declaration provides confirmation of whether or not an agency has Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) coverage. This information is required in the event of an incident while on placement.
