Criteria

The BSW and MSW programs at York University are accredited by the Canadian Association for Social Work Education (CASWE). As such, the School is required to abide by accreditation standards which suggest that a BSW student should be supervised by a BSW qualified Field Instructor and an MSW student be supervised by an MSW qualified Field Instructor .  The School recognizes that there may be professionals with a variety of backgrounds, levels of enthusiasm and field practice who would be interested in providing field instruction. We encourage those who are interested in supervising student placements to contact the Field Education Office as each request is assessed on a case-by-case basis.
