Program description

Pedagogical Work This programme focuses on the upbringing of children and young people from 0-23 years of age, within the context of the family or other relatives and institutions.

Applying their knowledge of pedagogy, educational theory, psychology and sociology, pedagogical workers create optimum opportunities for the development of children and young people (including the mentally or physically handicapped), paying specific attention to the relation between the child and his educator(s) as well as the interaction with the social environment. Being able to translate relevant expertise into practical solutions and advice, the interventions of a PW can be preventive, curative or corrective. This is done by way of supporting, counselling, advising or guarding on an individual, group or larger system level, or even on an organizational level in the capacity as a policy advisor. Most Pedagogical Workers find jobs in child care (organisations), education, youth welfare work in the context of Youth Care Offices , in so called community schools and as policy advisors in the field of child care and community policy. Graduates are trained to operate in an urban context with all the social challenges of contemporary life, such as immigrant, broken or vulnerable families, family life in deprived areas often on top of economic and housing instability.
