All students registered in PHED 3106 are required to complete a 50 hour experiential learning project. The experiential learning projects that students participate in during their first placement will be assigned based on several criteria including student requests and the availability of hosts. All PHED 3106 placements are conducted with approved partners in the Nipissing region.
Placements are assigned by sector:
Physical and Health Education
Sports Marketing/Sport Event Management
Fitness and Wellness
Placement sectors are explained in detail on the Placement Selection Form on the PHED 3106 Syllabus. Students must use the Placement Selection Form during the first week of classes to indicate their top three preferred sectors. If a student does not submit a placement request form, a placement will be assigned to them.
The Placement Office is responsible for arranging placements and does not accept requests for specific placements outside of the pre listed sectors, i.e. a particular school, office, team, etc. Placement students must not undertake negotiations for a placement on their own behalf. Placements are not transferable; students are not permitted to ‘exchange’ placements with student colleagues.
Important: Although we make every effort to assign student candidates to their first choice of sector, it is not always possible. Often, several applicants apply to the same sector. In these situations, positions will be awarded using a lottery system.
