Preparing for Placement

  • Once we determine if a pairing can be made between your agency and one of our students, St. Lawrence College will provide you with the necessary program information and coordinating additional needs to support the placement. This may include setting up an advanced meeting with the student if necessary.
  • We will also provide all necessary documentation to begin the placement, including a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA). It is mandatory for you to read, sign and return a copy of the MOA to the College before placement can commence.
  • Complete the Placement Supervisor Training to best prepare yourself for accepting a placement student
  • You will need to consider how to provide orientation for the student to begin their placement – see the 'What You Need to Know' section below. You will also be responsible for any additional agency specific training requirements for students while on placement with your organization.

Please contact us at placements@sl.on.ca if you would like support in any of these areas or more individualized training suggestions.

Returning Agency Only

  • If you already have an existing MOA in place with the College and you have agreed to support another student, we will send you a renewal letter to set up the new placement requirements.
  • Please contact your existing College Placement Representative or Placement Clerk for more details.
  • Memorandums of Agreement (MOA) are not required to be re-signed each year for each placement unless otherwise indicated.
  • If you have additional questions, please contact the Manager of the Student Placement Program (jburns@sl.on.ca).
