In his long life he has been very active in the field of social Education, figthing, even in a recent past for generous and modern ideas regarding the difficult kids and youngsters. A strong involvement, an example for us all.

Train large numbers of foster families in high quality childcare

Due to the UN decision to de-institutionalize childcare systems there is a growing need in the foster care systems for a high-quality and low-cost education to improve the life conditions of placed children. To meet this global challenge, Fairstart Foundation will launch a new international online foster care instructor education in January 2018.

The instructor education is tailored especially to governments and NGOs who are in need of an inexpensive solution that generates positive results both short-term and long-term. The education is low-cost, user-friendly and practice-oriented. Most importantly, all participants are encouraged to be co-designers and we aim to adapt the teaching material to local cultures and circumstances.

Based on the same training design, our group care educations have resulted in a remarkable progress in the children’s social behavior and trust in their caregivers. We welcome all countries and organisations into the project when we launch the first foster care instructor course in January 2018. Let’s give children a fair start.

A glimpse of the World Congress 2017

Social educators from 24 countries were gathered on 10-12 April 2017 at AIEJI’s World Congress in Brazil. 600 social educators were proud to celebrate that they have #thefinestjobintheworld. The motto of the congress was I am because we are.

At the congress social educators from all over the world shared their experiences, stories, good examples – and the difference they make for marginalised people.

The world needs us.” The president completed his speech with this message: “When you get up in the morning and look at yourselves in the mirror, then say to yourselves, or shout to yourselves – Yes, I have the finest job in the world” – and everybody shouted together!

Female social educator looking for job in France

Je m’appelle Merete, j’ai 29 ans et je cherche un travail en France. I graduated as a social educator in 2015 in Copenhagen in Denmark and have since then worked with young refugees. I have also experience from working in an orphanage and with people with mental developmental disorder. I have travelled quite a bit and enjoy learning new things and adapt into new cultures. For many years I’ve wanted to live in France and now seems to be the perfect time. That’s why I’m hoping to find a job, where I can use my skills as a social educator and at the same time gain more experience within my field. I’m looking for a job preferably with teens or young adults with some kind of social vulnerability or difficulties.
My French is not perfect, but I am taking French classes twice a week and am learning fast. I believe I’ll soon be able to communicate in French on a decent level. If you have knowledge of a job opportunity, a contact or just like to learn more about me please don’t hesitate to send me an email at merete_norgaard@hotmail.com

Best regards Merete Nørgaard, Denmark

Internship

Dear reader

I am a student at the Artesis Plantijn College in Antwerp (Belgium).

I’ll be graduated in June as bachelor in orthopedagogics option Comunnity Care.

I would like to do a foreign internship if there is a possibility. I want to expand my knowledge and gain experience, and at the same time I can enrich my cultural knowledge.

I would be happy to hear from you if there is an option to run an English or French language internship, in a institution with the target groups are, children and young people with developmental disabilities or with a light mental handicap and additional issues such as attachment disorder, learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, etc. This can also be in a school or other facilities.

Hopefully there are options.

Thank you for your comment!
