Supervisor Training and Support
Seminar in Field Instruction
Field Supervisors, especially new ones, are invited to participate in our Seminar in Field Instruction (SIFI). The seminar is offered free of charge to supervisors with students in the current academic year and provides 16 CEUs after successful completion. It meets eight times over the course of the academic year: five in the fall semester and three in the spring semester. The seminar combines a didactic presentation with group discussion. Supporting materials are made available online through Boston College's Canvas learning system.
To register for SIFI, complete the registration form and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or complete this Google form. Class size is limited to 20 per class.
Member schools of the New England Consortium of Graduate Field Education Directors (NECON) offer SIFI and other workshops throughout the year. If you are unable to attend SIFI at Boston College, you may take one offered at another New England school of social work. See the NECON website for the complete program schedule. Contact each school directly to register.
Boston College Continuing Education, in collaboration with the School of Social Work, offers continuing education workshops and courses throughout the year. Invitations to register for the workshops are sent to agency contacts, and some are offered free of charge in appreciation for the training of BCSSW students.
