School of Social Work: Practicum Experience

As the School of Social Work prepares students to become professional social workers we form partnerships with a large number of social service agencies. These agencies enter into a legal agreement with Hawaii Pacific University to provide practicum to both BSW and MSW students within specific requirements. We cannot accomplish our mission without their continuous participation, commitment and dedication to the education of future social workers.

Learning Agreement Contracts

Learning Agreement Contracts are joint documents that are instrumental for the student and Field Instructor/Practicum Site Supervisor to develop the objectives and tasks of the practicum experience based on the School of Social Work practice behaviors.  It is expected that the Learning Agreement is developed collaboratively by the student and Field Instructor/Practicum Site Supervisor and completion of the document is required for every practicum.

Print the LAC once the form is filled out, do not save.  Saving a filled-out LAC will erase all inputted information.

Midterm Practicum Site Visit Evaluation Form


The midterm evaluation is a formal verbal conference that will be conducted at the agency with the Practicum Field Instructor, the Student, and a faculty member from HPU School of Social Work.  The Midterm Evaluation Form is a template and worksheet that is used to guide the discussion.

Competencies/Practice Behaviors Practicum Assessment (PBPA) Survey Forms

PBPA survey forms are a way for Field Instructors/Practicum Site Supervisors and students to evaluate performance in the field based on practice behaviors.  We ask that the Field Instructors/Site Supervisors meet with their practicum student(s) to discuss the survey questions and answers.

The process to complete the PBPA forms requires some coordination between the Site Supervisor/Field Instructor and the student.  Please utilize the "How-To Guide and Reference Sheet" for a detailed explaination about the PBPA and process for completion.
