Career and Employment

Vocational Training graduates formulate and carry out educational projects aimed at promoting balanced character development and the recovery and social reintegration of individuals with psychophysical impairments in positions of risk and social marginalisation.

They work with children, young people, adults and the elderly to prevent and deal with situations of social difficulty and unease caused by disability, deviancy, poverty, marginalisation, and mental illness.

Social workers provide public or private healthcare, social welfare and socio-educational services in the community and in residential or semi-residential centres, in a freelance or employed capacity. These services can be provided either through clinics (Sert.T., Psychosocial Centres or Mental Health Centres, Initial Reception Centres), day centres (Social and Educational Centres, Rehabilitation Day Hospital Admissions, Integrated Day Centres, Youth Centres, Psychiatric Day Centres, etc.), or residential centres (Rehabilitation Centres, Welfare Health Residences, Psychiatric Communities, Communities for Disabled Persons, etc.).
