This course will be implemented through contact lessons, excursions to service providers and cooperation partners as well as a project.
The main focus areas are on the special needs of client groups for ensuring community and social inclusion; the issues and social stuctures that cause social exclusion; well-being and the importance of civic activities in social work
Course attendance requirements: You need to attend 70% of classes, so in case there are for example 10 contact times, each 4 hours, you can miss three 4-hour classes (12 hours). If your absences are more than that, your grade will drop by one, for example from 3 to 2. In case your absences exceed 50% of contact hours, you need to consult your teacher how to finalize the course (this could mean retaking the whole course, doing supplementary tasks or taking additional classes, if available). In case your tasks are considerably late but completed during the term in question, this will also affect your grade by -1. If the required tasks and requirements are not met, you need to enroll again for the course. For supplementary or delayed tasks, there will be no feedback.
