Social Education

Fields in which you can work

Social educators work in many different contexts and social and educational areas.

You could work on projects to promote a group or region (for example, a youth centre, a local development project or a sociocultural programme) or programmes for individual, family or group assistance that aim to foster the development of social skills and social movement (for example, programmes to prevent maltreatment, child protection centres or detention centres).

Although this is not an exhaustive list, the contexts and areas could include:

  1. Specific areas of intervention characteristic of the past development of the profession (sociocultural programmes, specialised social education, adult education and guidance, training and employment), and other emerging areas, such as artistic expression, urban space and mediation.
  2. Age groups: elderly people, adults, youths, adolescents and children.
  3. The existence of singular needs or social problems that increase the risk of exclusion or make it hard to develop sociability, social movement and social organisation of people and groups.
  4. The institutional context in which socioeducational actions are undertaken (social services, justice, official non-university education, culture, health, youth and free time, work, etc.).
  5. Socioeducational actions that could appear in the future that are determined by emerging social, technological, cultural or educational needs.
