Student welfare school social worker services

We support pupils in pre-primary and basic education as well as young and adult upper secondary students in various situations in life and school.

Student welfare services are predominantly preventive activities that support the educational community. In addition, pupils and students have the right to receive individual student welfare services. Sometimes your life situation can change so that you feel the need to discuss it alone with a student welfare professional. The discussions are confidential and voluntary. You can discuss the following topics with the school social worker, among other things: · life situation changes · learning and school attendance · emotional life · motivation and increasing resources · friendships, close relationships or your family situation · interaction challenges. The guardian of a child or young person can receive guidance and advice from the school social worker regarding e.g. school attendance, studies, parenting and upbringing. If necessary, the school social worker will cooperate with, for example, other student welfare staff, other family centre services or similar operators. Communal student welfare is a primary and preventative measure. Communal student welfare refers to the operating culture of an educational institution that promotes: · the pupils' and student's learning · health and well-being · social responsibility · interaction and inclusion. The school social worker contributes to the educational institution's communal student welfare services and multi-professional operations with their expertise. You can meet the school social worker at joint events of schools and educational institutions or in groups aimed at pupils and students
