This is a Supervised Theological Field Education Unit. STFE provides a framework for reflection, action, and the integration of learning with pastoral practice. It takes a specific context of ministry and focuses on how the application of skills gained and concepts explored during theological studies are now being applied and critiqued. Students are required to engage in a pastoral placement, approved by the Director of Field Education after a formal interview, for a minimum of twelve hours per week for two semesters.
