Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The purpose of this study was to examine social worker's experiences of the relationship between education and work. This was done by analyzing how social work students during a trainee program meet job-specific tasks. To answer the study's purpose, we have set up four issues: "What skills will be visible in the transition from education to working life?", "What experiences are characterized in the social worker’s practical work?", “How do the social workers adjust their knowledge from education to work” and “Which support for learning does the trainee program give?". The study is based on qualitative semi-structured interviews. We interviewed five social workers who are participating or have participated the trainee program. The material has been analyzed based on our chosen theories of situated learning. The results show that what social workers have done within the framework of the trainee program forms a distinct relationship between education and work. What the social workers have experienced as important in the trainee program is talking with others at the workplace, observation of experienced colleagues and participation in practical sessions.
