Worksite learning, also known as a practicum, is a key component of the Classroom and Community Support program. Each practicum lets you gain experience by applying classroom learning in the field and gain valuable employment contacts. You can expect to complete over 250 hours of field practice in placements arranged around Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley.
You complete at least two field placements. The first 5-week practicum takes place at the beginning of the second semester, the second 5-week practicum is held at the end of the third semester.
Practicum sites are located across the Lower Mainland. Placements are selected by faculty, based on your interests and learning needs and site availability.
