While counselor education programs are directly responsible for the didactic instruction and the development of basic counseling skills, they rely on field study sites and site supervisors to help train and produce professional trained counselors. The quality of training and supervision determined the quality of the experiential learning, as well as the ultimate competency level of the intern. This article describes a prototype for the design, organization, implementation, and evaluation of an exceptional field study site training and supervision plan for producing highly competent career counselors. The article outlines the key components of a successful training site and supervision plan, which include meeting the needs of the client through three stakeholders: counselor education department; agency site; and the graduate student.
