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 get to know people with difficult and turbulent biographies. The profession is personally rewarding, but requires a willingness to continuously work on your personality.

The continuing education course was developed in consultation with the Child and Youth Welfare of Lower Austria.
