If you meet the criteria outlined and you would like to be considered as a practicum Supervisor for GCAP students (or for a specific GCAP student), please complete the following steps. Applying for pre-approval in no way obligates you to take on supervision of a practicum student.
All practicum information is managed through our web-based Practicum Information Management System [PIMS]. Please carefully review the technical information for using PIMS before you complete your application.
Complete the practicum supervisor approval form through PIMS. If you have difficulty accessing or using this form, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: If the organization you work for does not appear on the list of approved organizations on this form, please follow the steps to obtain practicum organization approval before completing the supervisor approval process. Please allow five (5) working days for the organizational approval to be completed and the organization to be added to the list before submitting the practicum supervisor approval form. Once the organization has been approved, it will appear on the drop down menu on your application form (click on image to view larger).
We also require submission of an electronic version of your curriculum vitae for review. Please send the CV in Word, RTF, JPEG, or PDF format to the Practicum Coordinator email@example.com.
You will be contacted by email once your application has been reviewed and will be provided with a log in ID and password to the internal pages on this website. Please save this email for future reference and use the link supplied in the email to login to the Supervisor view of the GCAP website. You will then be able to access all the information you require to work with a specific student to set up a practicum placement. You are given the option in your application to elect to have your name and contact information posted on our internal website so that interested GCAP students may contact you directly.
You may access the online database system using any of the Recommended Browsers for the GCAP website. You must allow / enable pop ups from the GCAP site to be able to smoothly operate with this system. Please follow the steps below to enable / allow pop ups.
If you have installed Toolbars (Yahoo, Google, etc.) in your web browser, please also ensure that they do not block pop-ups.
Here is an example how to enable pop-ups in too most common toolbars:
All PIMS notifications are dispatched by automated email sent to the email account you provided in your supervisor or second reader profile. Delay in receiving email notification could potentially cause delays in processing your submission. Please double check that GCAP emails are not filtered out as spam and that these emails are delivered to your inbox. On occasion, certain firewalls will prevent automated email delivery. Please talk to the security/email administrator of your organization and ask them to allow emails from the @gcap.ca and @athabascau.ca mail domains.
If you need technical support to access information in PIMS, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
