The European Office of the International Association of Social Educators  (OE-AIEJI) at the moment represented by the Council of Social Educators’ Collegues of Spain, concerned with the dynamics of the E.U regarding the recognition of Professional Qualifications  is calling and organising  the European Symposium of Professional Associations of Social Educators.


 5th and  6th April 2014.


 The city of Zaragoza. Centro de Historias (C/ San Agustin, 2)

 There will be simultaneous translation Languages of the Symposiumon Spanish- English-Spanish


We expect two representatives from each professional association in Europe will attend this meeting. Participation in the Symposium is by invitation only. The European Bureau of AIEJI aims to have different elements from all European countries so that the agreements and arguments can have the greatest possible representation and involvement.

We refer to professional associations as those organisations that represent the collective of Social Educators in their countries. Those that have stated by their by-laws  to work towards the promotion and organisation of the profession in their respective countries, with the purpose of improving the quality of service provision to people with whom educators work.

It is preferable that professional association participates in research about common training principles by filling a excel sheet with universities or centres and scientific areas.

So far we present the relation of Professional Associations of Social Educators we know and have invited, we will be very glad to know of any other existing  entities:
