Prior Learning Assessment Recognition:
PLAR tools are implemented into the curriculum and used in the assessment and evaluation of a learner’s knowledge, skills, attitudes and beliefs.
SSW assists children, adults, seniors, families and youth in need of support. This occupation will prepare you for a variety of job opportunities such as:
Learners are responsible for finding their own placement in an area of interest to him/her. There are two practicums required and there is an option to gain recognition for the first practicum if a student has a minimum of 2 years related paid experience in the field. This option can be negotiated with the program EDO.
If help is required to obtain placement, AEI staff would be happy to assist. Employers who provide field placement settings require a police record check for criminal offences before accepting a student into a field placement. The record check shall be obtained at the learner’s expense and AEI or the College assume no obligation for ensuring field placement or a program completion for students who are unable to provide a clear police record check.
To successfully complete the IKSSW program, learners must have a current First Aid and CPR certificate. The cost for certification is the responsibility of the learner. AEI can offer training if there is enough interest and the fee is dependent on the number of students enrolled.
