Social Pedagogics

Continuing Education Course

Social Pedagogues help to organize everyday life for and with people who require assistance. They support learning processes and accompany people through difficult periods in their lives. They work with children in parks, with teenager cliques, in homes and shared community living for children, teenagers, and people with disabilities, and elderly people. They help families master everyday challenges, organize social learning at schools and create leisure time activities. They get to know people with difficult and turbulent biographies.

The profession is personally rewarding, but requires a willingness to continuously work on your personality.
