Private E-team



Are we on the right track with Five Core Competences as a Sustainable Model for the Bachelor of Social Work Program?

Presented by Prof.dr Frans Spierings, Anja Stofberg MA, Karin Blom, Trijnke van Dijk at Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences, the Netherlands

Through intensive interaction with regional Social work organisations, a broad T-shaped educational model was developed with the following characteristics:
- Two years basic education around social issues and critical professional situations
- Two year of graduation profiling
- Five end qualifications and level differences through the four years of schooling for the social worker anno 2020.

The intent of the session is to exchange views, share and inspire the international participants around the benefits of this broad T-shaped educational model and to question ‘to what extent do these five core competences cover a comprehensive and sustainable social work program & what improvements are feasible.
