Career Opportunities 

The main objective of the social worker is to restore social ties, to help people regain their independence and ensure their social integration.
The social worker must inform and advise them of their rights to social benefits, medical care and education. They must also guide the people they meet towards the relevant authorities and of course, support their requests.

Course Details

Classes are held from October to March, for 21 weeks. They are held twice a week, to give students the time and opportunity to do a work placement during the rest of the week.

Classes take place on Thursdays and Fridays.

Internships are spread across the length of the course (either chosen by the student or suggested by IPAC). Doing an internship alongside classes can allow students to gain an understanding of the realities of the profession, and it will make them more capable of discussing professional topics during interviews during the admission process.

Together, the work placement and the internship make up around 35 hours per week.
