The Social Service Worker Applied Diploma program combines theory and classroom instruction with practical experience during supervised Practicums in the work place. Students at the diploma level work in situations requiring greater independence and a higher level of skill than expected in the Social Service Worker Certificate. Graduates have the skills and knowledge needed for work as a social service paraprofessional. Please contact us if you looking to mentor practicum students on their way to becoming qualified workers for residential child/adult care services, men’s and women’s programs, group homes, shelters, First Nations social services organizations, and more.

Many students are available for work experience, internships or for hire at the end of a semester following final exams especially in the spring. So be sure to connect with us in the fall or January/February with postings. Please use the links below if you have any questions about the Social Service Worker (Applied Diploma) program.
