Seminar in Field Instruction Information
Field Supervisors who have not yet taken the Seminar in Field Instruction (SIFI), either through Springfield College or another accredited graduate school of social work, must plan to do so. Most New England area schools of social work offer the SIFI through a cooperative network.  If you would like to attend a seminar in your area at a participating school, please contact the school or program in graduate social work in your area. Please note that some schools are not able to take supervisors into their SIFIs who are supervising students from other schools.

At the Springfield College School of Social Work, participants:

  • Receive 16 CEUs (must attend 7 of 8 sessions to meet the completion and CEU requirements)
  • May access the School of Social Work Field Practicum Manual available online to Field Supervisors
  • Receive the seminar and reading packets free of charge and provided at each session
  • Receive a certificate of completion, awarded by the School of Social Work after completion of the CEU requirement
