Students benefit from two placement opportunities in the PHED program.  During the 2020/21 academic year, students are expected to explore placements that may not have been their first choice.  Options will be limited due to COVID 19 restrictions, and there is value to be found in the experience of all placements.  


PHED 3106 Outline
PHED 4106 Outline

Carefully review your course outline for full Clearance Document details.
PHED 4106 must complete a Declaration of Offence  
If you require a Police Vulnerable Sector Check and a letter is requested by your jurisdiction, connect with your Placement Coordinator to obtain one via email.  
The Clearance Documents outlined are requirements set out by the BPHE program, and students may be requested to obtain other training/documents by their Placement Hosts.  Any additional clearance requirements should be communicated with the Placement Coordinator for tracking purposes. 


New for 2020/21: The School of Physical and Health Education will allow students in PHED 3106 to seek out and “self-initiate” placements outside of North Bay. This has always been our practice for PHED 4106, but given that some PHED 3106 students may be living at home, we are allowing students to seek out opportunities wherever they are living.
Placements are not finalized until Request Forms are submitted to the coordinator for review and have been approved. CLICK HERE to access a Self-Initiating Guide outlining best practices.


Placements can only begin once Clearance Documents, Request Forms and Agreement forms have been submitted and reviewed.  A confirmation email from the Placement Coordinator confirming documentation completion will be sent to the student and Placement Host.  Once that email has been sent, placement involvement can begin.  Approvals will only take place after September 8, 2020.    Any hours completed prior to receiving confirmation from the Placement Coordinator, will not count toward the 50 hour requirement.


Request Forms are required by all placement hosts to show their interest in hosting a Bachelor of Physical and Health Education student either virtually or in person for the 2020 – 2021 academic year. Request FormClick Here.

If an appropriate match with one of our students is made, Placement Hosts will be asked to complete the CLP Evaluation Form once the student has completed the 50 hour requirement. – Click Here


Once a placement has been approved by the Placement Coordinator, the Student and Supervising Host will be instructed to complete the CLP Agreement FormClick Here.  This form also summarizes the main duties and responsibilities of both the student and host, and it is trusted that all expectations will be reviewed thoroughly.  


Students and Placement Hosts are responsible for ensuring 50 hours of work placement is achieved.  The 2020 – 2021 Time Tracking Sheet will assist in monitoring the progress of placement and is to be submitted to the Placement Coordinator upon completion.

Students are welcome to explore the list of potential placements.  To show your interest you can email your Placement Coordinator beginning Monday September 14, 2020.  Any emails prior to that date will not be reviewed in order to allow all students in the program the opportunity to review and inquire.  The list of opportunities will not accommodate all students, and it is imperative all PHED students understand that they should actively be seeking potential locations on their own.
