Qualification of Social Educational Care Work

The study programme produces specialist childcare workers/counsellors who can integrate remedial education in a variety of professional contexts. They counsel clients and/or the client system who need support so to as to ensure, and possibly improve, their quality of life. The study programme instils general competences into the students, including skills to think and reason logically; the ability to acquire information and to reflect critically, managerial and communication skills and a lifelong learning attitude.

- supports and stimulates children and young people in all aspects of their development and integrates the educational principles in the day-to-day supervision;
