Professional training of future social workers in the face of instability
Palabras clave:social work, quality of training, quality classes, criteria for measurement, competencies, continuous education.
The training of social workers is mainly carried out in the system of higher professional education. The educational standard has yet to be finalized - it contains professional and general cultural competencies but fails to formulate qualitative characteristics that would indicate the criteria for their assessment. At the same time, most countries that are members of the International Association of Schools of Social Work (IASSW) impose a whole system of specific requirements on applicants for social work training. The objective of this study is to address the scientific problem of developing a model for the continuous education system for social workers and analyze the quality of their training. The study employs a mixed-methods approach, combining quantitative and qualitative research methods. The study highlights the increased relevance and demand for social workers in addressing global problems. The identified challenges in social development, i ncluding social inequality, political instability, and environmental issues, underscore the importance of well-trained social workers to tackle these complex social issues effectively. The study's results contribute to the development of a model for continuous education in social work, with a focus on addressing the gaps in training and competencies. The findings provide evidence-based recommendations for improving the quality of social workers' training, ultimately enhancing their ability to address the diverse and evolving needs of individuals and communities in the face of global challenges.
