dc.description.abstract As a social worker, I believe that education constructs fundamental skills essential for personal wellbeing. It builds knowledge, enhances socialization, improves communities, and opens occupational opportunities that lead to financial security. This report discusses my experience as a Master of Social Work practicum student at a post-secondary institute, Saskatchewan Polytechnic, Prince Albert campus. It illustrates the agency's profile, describes the services offered within the agency, and explains the role of a social worker at their institution. Job shadowing, interviewing, assessing, researching, advocating, and counselling were major components within this placement. The report displays the overarching goal of my experience in addition to the nine objectives that were achieved. Theories utilized in practice are discussed when illustrating how I achieved my objectives. This report describes barriers to post- secondary education that were applicable to my practicum placement and it elucidates thoughts of how these barriers can be overcome. I discuss how these barriers can be subjugated as well as offer deliberations towards achievable post-secondary education for those who wish to advance their careers. I illustrate the ethics used while in my placement as well as describe the limitations in practice. I conclude with how this experience and the knowledge gained will be utilized in my future practice as a Master’s-level social worker. en_US
