A student’s final Field Work Term assessment is based on adherence to due dates, supervisor evaluation(s), meeting the required number of work hours, completing quality reflective assignments, and compliance with the Field Work Term student-employer agreement.
: Given that all first year students write a first-year essay incorporating aspects of FWT learning, first year students are exempt from answering the reflective essay questions below.
Instead, all first year students are required to fill out a self-evaluation survey asking questions about work competency development over Field Work Term.
Students are required to complete 200 hours of work.
Students can work all of the 200 hours at up to two primary sites, or have the option to use 60 hours towards a supplemental position at a secondary site.
