Community Work and Social Change: A Report on Training.
Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Lisbon (Portugal).
A special community development study group analyzed the range of objectives, roles, employment patterns, and settings in British community work; identified future objectives and roles, especially in such areas as psychology and sociology; and recommended methods and subject content for professional community worker training. Existing training provisions--inservice training, further education courses, refresher courses, and the like--were varied but limited. Accordingly, short-range and long-range steps were proposed to use scarce resources to meet differing needs of full time community workers as well as of teachers, social workers, clergy, health workers, architects, and others with an element of community concern in their work. Finally, cooperation toward specific goals (including improved support and training of volunteers, provisions for field work and placement, student grants-in-aid, a broad survey of community worker functions, and a publicly financed but independent council) are urged between and among government departments and other institutions. (Included are appendixes on community development and organization, salary scales, qualifications and positions, and elements of a sample syllabus, along with brief data on training in the United States and the Netherlands.)
