Become an Internship Supervisor
A Social Work Supervisor is a social worker who possesses a BSW or MSW degree (requirement dependent on the level of the intern and campus supervised) and has at least two year post-graduate practice experience who supports the intern in their integration of practicum practice and classroom learning. The Social Work Supervisor supports the intern in developing the learning contract, navigating ethical dilemmas, integrating theory, values, and practice, and when possible, also supervises the day-to-day activities of the intern. The Social Work Supervisor is either on-site at the internship agency or an off-site partner supporting the student virtually.
A Task Supervisor is an identified employee within the agency placement who provides day-to-day supervision of a social work intern. Task Supervisors are often assigned when the agency does not have a BSW or MSW staff to provide supervision of the social work intern, or when the agency has many units or divisions where interns practice apart from a more centralized Social Work Supervisor.
