According to the National Association for Social Workers, One unique feature of social work education is field placement. In addition to classroom study, all social work students have field experiences, that provide them an opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills in a real world setting. A field placement can be any work setting in which social workers practice. Some examples include mental health clinics, child and family service agencies, and policy organizations. Thus the first requirement for all candidates is the availability for field placement for some of the social-work practice courses.
