The 19th AIEJI World Congress took place in Brazil, April 2017.
The two reports, presented at the World Congress, can be downloaded here:
My name is Lars. I’m 26 years old and from Denmark.
I’m looking to move to the US, more specifically the New York/New Jersey areas.
I have a Bachelor in Social Education and I have work field experience from working in a social psychiatric environment, where I have encountered people with multiple diagnoses and drug addiction.
I would prefer to work in this kind of environment again but I’m open to other kinds of work within the Social Educational spectrum.
I’ve recently visited the US and Canada, so I have a taste of what it’s like over there.
My English is fluent both in writing and speaking.
If you have any interest or if you are able to help me in any way, please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
As you are probably aware, NGOs and caregivers in group care systems (small group homes, orphanages, fugitive child groups) around the world have little access to formal and research based caregiver training, and group instructor education. To meet this demand for high quality trainer’s training, www.fairstartfoundation.com now has designed an online education in training groups of caregivers.
The first class Jan 2017 is already full – participants are from Russia, India, Indonesia, Canada and Estonia. If you wish to join the class starting medio March 2017, please mail us at email@example.com. We will provide you with materials.
You can find more details about our mission to change child research into low cost training tools for NGOs at www.fairstartfoundation.com.
Since 2008, Fairstart designed free online training programmes in fifteen language versions, to provide local NGOs worldwide with high quality caregiver training. We cooperate with NGOs who translate and adjust our training programs to local culture during training. For example, we are developing versions of our training programs in Swahili and Kinyarwanda, for SOSChildren’s Villages. We operate on all continents.
To ensure the successful implementation of our online based training, we have now developed a Certified online Instructor Education. This education is a low cost tool to educate key persons in your organisation in how to use our online caregiver group training programmes. It complies with the European Qualification Standard at level five (mastering theory and group education). NGOs can refer groups for instructor training, and individuals can sign up as well.
(We are currently working on the design of a foster care instructor education in using also our foster care training programmes – this will be available during 2017).
How can I apply for joining the first class?
The instructor education is an eight module online-based curriculum which takes 4 months to complete and requires only 3-4 hours of work a week for each student. During this, each student trains a group of caregivers, using five sessions from our online caregiver group training programs.
Education demo: On our webpage (http://www.fairstartinstructor.com/courses/course-v1:FairstartFoundation+DEMO101+demo/about) you can access a free demo and study the first module, which will guide you through our education, its structure and its benefits.
Best wishes from child psychologist Niels Peter Rygaard, CEO at the Fairstart Foundation, Denmark”
Very soon, 2nd of October, we’ll celebrate a very special day: The international day of social educators. This is the day we celebrate our profession – that we have the competences to support humans in need, that we know what this support means for humans and society and that we’re proud of what we’re doing and what we can achieve!
A Facebook-event is created for the celebration. This can be found here:
Please invite other social educators to join the event.
Also, we are looking forward to seeing your contributions to the celebration. Please share photos that show that you and your colleagues are proud of your job either on Instagram using #thefinestjobintheworld or on Facebook posting your pictures on the Facebook event. Please also share information at Facebook about activities concerning this special day. Together we will show the world that we are proud of our job and want the world to know.
Happy Social Educators Day!

My name is Heidi I’m 25 years old and I’m from Denmark here I have just finished my study in pedagogic/Social Education where I’ve been focusing on children with special needs and socially disadvantages children in orphanages. I’m seeking a job abroad long or short term, to learn more and give me better professional qualifications and competency.
I’m a positive and outgoing girl who loves to explore. Therefore I have been on some long term and short term travels. I love to learn more about and meet new people, new nationalities and cultures. It has taught me that working with people are something I really have a passion for.
I have worked and been doing volunteer work in: Cambodia (6 months), Jamaica (2 months), Tanzania (3 months). Furthermore I have worked in Denmark as a handicap helper (5 years) and in homes for children and young kids between 0-18 years with different disabilities and severe multiple handicaps to relieve their parents. (3 months – 1 year)
My greatest personal strengths are that I am outgoing, positive, smiling, cooperative, creative, responsible and very open to new challenges. I am committed to my work and take my job very seriously. And the most important thing for me is to try to make a difference, small or big.
