Adequacy of training in social work to professional practice

One of the major concerns that the contemporary brings to training is the need of its relationship with the labour market. In social work this articulation is assumed not only as a mere adaptation of the training matrix to the demands of the labor market, but it means, above all, a directive in the formulation of its professional project.  Based on this assumption, we started this research project which intends to assess the perceptions of finalist’s students of Social Work (undergraduate) regarding the suitability of their training to the needs and challenges that professionals face in their professional practice. Also intends to assess their perceptions about the theoretical-methodological and technical-instrumental skills acquired during the years of training and students degree of satisfaction with it.
