Educational Model for Social Service Administration and Management. Summary Progress Report.
Wright, Marjorie Brown
This paper constitutes a summary progress report on a short-term training course designed to provide social work bachelor's degree practitioners with the knowledge and skills necessary for administrative and managerial positions. Increasingly, social work graduates have reported moving into social service administration and managerial positions without these skills. A survey, which gathered information from graduates over a three-year period, indicated a need for competence in the areas of middle management, organization, planning, financial management, personnel administration, program development, and evaluation. The intensive three-day training course was interdisciplinary in nature and designed to provide managerial skills that could be immediately useful to the participants on their jobs. Student evaluations of the course were positive which in turn has led to the incorporation of a similar course into the undergraduate academic curriculum. (Author/DE)
