In essence, the school social worker promotes the social-emotional development and independent functioning of students by solving, alleviating or making manageable psychosocial problems that hinder the student's learning process and social participation. As a school social worker, you are part of the care structure within a school.  

You are present at a school for a number of fixed hours. You offer support and advice to students and teachers. As a school social worker you consult with teachers, the care team, parents and network partners and you are the bridge towards external assistance. You are proactive and ensure visibility of the SMW within the school, so that your colleagues know how to find you. 

When necessary, you provide training for educational professionals, parents and students. You have extensive knowledge of what concerns young people and have the independence to navigate well both inside and outside the school walls.  
You will be added to our team of school social workers with whom you will have regular work meetings and peer review. 

As a school social worker you have strong and tactical communication skills, you have knowledge of the environment of young people, you are committed and have a high degree of empathy.
