Course objectives
The practice in the social field creates space for completing the full qualification of a social pedagogue, combining the skills acquired by the previous study. Regarding the form of study, students of combined studies only have a minimal practice which includes 20 hours of selected practice within the chosen specialization.
Learning outcomes
The student will be oriented in the services resulting from the Social Services Act No. 108/2006. He will be able to apply specific methods and ways of working in his own social work and social pedagogy. Students will be able to find their way in the possible job opportunities offer in their field after graduation. They will extend their skills in social work and social pedagogy. The student will demonstrate the skill of educational work through application of appropriate content and adequate methods of work (social and pedagogical). He responds to a certain reality that he seeks to influence (or directly intervene) through appropriately chosen strategies.
  • This pedagogical practice involves individual practice, meaning that students choose a facility, institution, or organization to collect knowledge and experience in and they will record it in detail in the practice logbook. During this practice student has the opportunity to have a look at the selected area of environmental or multicultural education. They get familiar with the operation of a facility or institution, work with a selected clientele, or a target group with whom he works in appropriate ways and methods according to the target of the facility. These are 4 hours of direct work per day, either throughout the week, or the practice can be divided into units by the target group they are working with (for example, weekend activities for children, youth, adults or seniors), or eventually the practice can be divided into the whole semester (it will be a continuous practice of two to three hours a week, when the student is going to the selected facility where he works with the clientele). After an agreement with the guarantors of practice, students will reach out to the facility, fill in a contract of practice and join a weekly intensive practice that assumes 4 hours of direct work with the client or clients on a daily basis, eventually with a selected target group according to the organization's specialization in practice.
