ПОДГОТОВКА СПЕЦИАЛИСТОВ В ОБЛАСТИ СОЦИАЛЬНОЙ РАБОТЫ В ДАНИИ (ИЗ ОПЫТА АКАДЕМИЧЕСКОЙ МОБИЛЬНОСТИ НВГУ И UC SYD)

Abstract:

Social work as a sphere of professional activity had formed in Europe by the middle of the XX century, but the experience accumulated in different countries did not result in uniform standard for the social welfare work and professional training. In Russia, social and welfare training is a relatively new training programme (since 1991), which needs to be substantially detailed by theoretical experience and practical recommendations from colleagues from around the world. In these conditions, academic mobility provides an opportunity to enrich the modern system of qualified social and welfare personnel training and expand our understanding of the structure of foreign professional education, as well as technologies, approaches and forms of student training. The authors show that various aspects of student social and welfare professional training are in the focus of do-mestic and foreign academic interest; two main sources of this problem are identified. The article dwells on the practical experience the students and teachers of Nizhnevartovsk State University and Aabenraa University College South Denmark accumulated through academic exchange. Regulations and statistical data analysis, observations, interviews, discussions and seminars helped to provide the necessary insight into the system of social and welfare training in Denmark. Research material may be of interest to students of Social Work programmes when studying such subjects as ‘Foreign Experience of Social Work’, ‘Social Education Fundamentals’; to teachers when developing bachelor train-ing curriculum; to specialists of institutions when organizing student practical training
