Office of Field & Clinical Experiences
The Office of Field and Clinical Experiences (OFCE) plays a critical role in the preparation of teacher education majors and teacher licensure candidates at Winston-Salem State University. The major responsibilities of the OFCE include facilitating all education related field experiences. The OFCE works closely with administrators in local school systems and other approved settings that will provide placement opportunities to support teacher education majors and teacher licensure candidates in becoming highly qualified teachers in their respective areas.
All teacher education majors and teacher licensure candidates must present proof of professional liability insurance prior to beginning any field experiences. Professional liability insurance is specialty coverage that will provide legal protection in the event that legal action is brought against students while they are performing field experience activities. Students are encouraged to acquire professional liability insurance through one of the following options:
- Student North Carolina National Association of Educators
- Professional Educators of North Carolina
- Specialty area professional organization
- Place of employment
