Training goals
First trainee-ship is the first field experience for the students, in the services in which social workers apply themselves. In this path, students have a double support, from both an external social worker and an academic tutor.
Specific training goals will be:
- let the student thinks on her/his own motivations and expectations on her/his university choices and on her/his professional future;
- let grow the student's capacity to reflect on the relations dynamics, with other social operators, users, and with all the others relations that she/he could start during the progress of the social service where she/he is inserted. Then share her/his worries, doubts, and expectations on her/his experience;
- consolidate the capacity of the student to work in team and to learn through the group exercitations;
- promote the connection between theory and practice and stimulate in the students an exploratory approach with curiosity and interest in the profession and in the social ambit;
- encourage the comparison, the sharing and the discussions of situations and events in common verified during the practical experience of the students.

Course program
During the talks and the lectures, the operative reality and the territorial distribution of the services who gave the availability to host trainees, will be showed to the students; lectures on specific aspects of trainee-ship will be made, to promote the pursue of training goals.
