Learning outcomes

Starting from the contents of the 328/2000 Italian law, that institutionalize the "integrated system of social interventions and services", which propose to contemplate in the social policy system a complex series of subjects, organizations and intervention tools, the Teaching Sociology and social service aims to provide the conceptual, methodological and cultural foundations necessary to operate in complex areas. In particular, we will provide useful skills to realize the planning, organization and evaluation of social interventions and services that involve a multiplicity of subjects belonging to the public sphere and to that of the private nonprofit.

In particular:
1. the interinstitutional planning module aims to provide a presentation of the scenario that requires an innovative planning in local health and social services; and to train skills to connect programming to the operation of the professional social service;
2. the research and evaluation module is aimed at providing students with the cognitive tools and methodological skills to set up a social research in the areas of their future professional commitment, favoring in particular the development of specific knowledge for the understanding of the topic and methodology. indicators in the evaluation of projects in the social and socio-health environment.
3. The Third Sector Sociology module intends to provide the student with the theoretical elements necessary to elaborate sociological reading appropriate to the phenomenon of the third sector, offering a key to interpreting the role that the sector can play in the context of the welfare state crisis and the innovation in the provision of social services.
Details of the training objectives can be found on the pages of each specific training module.

Program

------------------------
MM: PROGETTAZIONE INTERISTITUZIONALE
------------------------
The social care reform considers programming as the key tool for the governance of social and health policies. In the last decade, the work of social workers has been invested by several complexity factors: - The transformation of the welfare systems, characterized by the presence of several actors (public and private) oriented by values and interests sometimes conflicting with each other; - The multidimensionality of social problems and the need to consider plans and projects as tools for the integration of well-being policies (relationships with the social private sector; integration between social and health care; corporate, municipal and community welfare, etc). - The onset of particularly urgent social problems (eg. Migrations, environmental disasters, transformations of the family, new forms of addiction, etc.), foreign to the traditional political codes. This new scenario requires to rethink the social worker's advanced training. Course contents: - Methodologies for reading the complex problems; - Methods and techniques that can support innovation in the social interventions; - procedures through which the social planning becomes an advanced core competence of professional social work.

Stage e Tirocini

Il Corso di Studi prevede un tirocinio obbligatorio, secondo le disposizioni e indicazioni che seguono.
1. Le attività di tirocinio degli studenti si svolgono presso strutture esterne, convenzionate con l’Università degli Studi di Verona ai sensi delle vigenti disposizioni in materia.
2. Nelle strutture esterne gli studenti svolgono le attività di tirocinio sotto la responsabilità di un assistente sociale (Tutor-supervisore), appartenente a dette strutture, coordinato a sua volta dal responsabile del tirocinio presso il Corso di Studio. In assenza di un assistente sociale, operante nella struttura esterna, il Collegio didattico, per quanto di competenza, decide, su proposta dei responsabili del tirocinio, in ordine alle condizioni per l’effettuazione o la prosecuzione delle attività di tirocinio degli studenti interessati.
3. Le attività di tirocinio sono obbligatorie per almeno 250 ore. Il Collegio didattico, in deroga alle disposizioni del presente articolo, può consentire a studenti che si trovino in particolari condizioni, in specie se disabili, lavoratori o impegnati in organismi collegiali dell’Università degli Studi di Verona, di non ottemperare in parte all’obbligo di frequenza alle attività di tirocinio, predisponendo forme alternative di tirocinio, anche tramite supporti telematici e multimediali interattivi.
4. I responsabili delle attività di tirocinio presso il Corso di Studio, anche avvalendosi di appositi collaboratori o tutori esterni, accertano la presenza degli studenti presso le rispettive strutture.
5. Al termine dell’attività di tirocinio, lo studente deve presentare una relazione scritta al responsabile di tale attività presso il Corso di Studio. Lo studente elabora la relazione scritta, controfirmata dal Tutor-supervisore. La relazione finale viene valutata dal responsabile del tirocinio presso il Corso di Studio e deve tenere conto degli obiettivi prefissati dal Collegio didattico.
La valutazione viene attribuita al tirocinio nel seguente modo: sufficiente = 0; buono = 1; ottimo = 2; eccellente = 3 e verrà aggiunta alla media dei voti del curriculum al momento della discussione della tesi.
6. Gli Uffici della Direzione Didattica e Servizi agli Studenti predispongono la documentazione necessaria allo svolgimento delle attività di tirocinio, comprese attestazioni e certificazioni.
7. Nel caso in cui lo studente partecipi al programma Erasmus le attività di tirocinio vengono regolamentate come segue:
A – Lo studente svolge il Tirocinio presso la sede Erasmus.
Se lo studente svolge il Tirocinio all’estero si ritiene “assolto” l’obbligo di frequenza al Laboratorio se:
- lo studente aggiorna il proprio docente/tutor con brevi relazioni mensili da inviare mezzo mail, sull’andamento del lavoro svolto presso la sede estera;
- produce una relazione finale completa del tirocinio svolto.
La valutazione finale del laboratorio di guida al tirocinio sarà effettuata da parte del tutor del laboratorio sulla base della relazione dello studente tenendo conto della eventuale valutazione da parte del supervisore estero.
B – Lo studente non svolge il Tirocinio presso la sede Erasmus
Se lo studente non svolge il Tirocinio nella sede Erasmus e lo deve fare al rientro:
- lo studente effettua uno/due incontri individuali iniziali con il docente/tutor in cui predisporre quanto necessita per l’avvio del tirocinio e nei quali verranno forniti materiali, griglie ed eventuali testi di riferimento;
- invia brevi relazioni mensili sull’andamento del tirocinio che sarà svolto in Italia al di fuori del periodo in cui si tiene normalmente il laboratorio di guida al tirocinio;
- produce la relazione finale completa del tirocinio svolto.
Il Corso di Studi prevede un laboratorio interdisciplinare come attività formativa trasversale (3 Cfu di tipo F), presente nell’elenco degli insegnamenti Il laboratorio, per regolamento, prevede la frequenza obbligatoria per almeno i due terzi del totale delle ore. 

Per altre informazioni in merito alle procedure per svolgere il tirocinio, è possibile contattare l'Ufficio Stage e Tirocini.
