Field education experiences are an opportunity for MSW students to gain knowledge in the fundamentals of the social work profession. The aim of field education is to promote practice competence through students’ learning to integrate and apply the knowledge, values, and skills of social work while also offering services to individuals, families, groups, and communities. Students can also do field work in administration, planning, orpolicy development activities. An experienced social worker, usually an employee of the service setting, provides educationally focused field instruction and is accountable for services provided to clients. Specifically, students learn to practice the profession through active involvement with "real" experiences in which they perform a service or helping role, andopportunities are provided for study of their practice ( Wayne et al 2010). Depending on the agency a student completes their field education, it can help them gain experiences in a particular area of social work they aspire to have a career in.An explanation of your role as an intern in your field education experience, including your agency learning agreement.
