Looking over the requirements it seemed that they were looking for social workers to liaise between patients and caregivers. I didn’t really know what liaison would consist of so I sent in my application to see if I would be interviewed and receive more detailed information about it. I received notification that I was in the process and that they would contact me later for a Skype interview, prior to a face-to-face interview in Madrid or Marbella.
To make it clear to you that the company offers at the beginning work as a SOCIAL CARE WORKER, that is to say, a home help assistant and as you gain experience in the company you will be able to move up a category, move on to other functions as well as a salary increase.
Couldn’t they warn you about this from the beginning? It really seems to me that they are playing with people’s hopes, and with the unemployment situation in this country. Attached to the mail this time came a little more detailed functions, where it was already passed from initially “Social Care Worker” to “Domiciliary Care”:
Social work is a practice-based profession and social science and an academic discipline that promotes social change and development, social cohesion, empowerment and liberation of people. The principles of social justice, human rights, collective responsibility, and respect for diversity are central to social work. Underpinned by social work theories, social science, humanities, and indigenous knowledge, social work engages people and structures to address life challenges and enhance well-being. Social work is a social work practice that is based on theories of social work, social science, humanities, and indigenous knowledge.
Social work is linked to social well-being, but it must be understood in broader terms. The concept of social welfare goes back as mentioned above to very ancient times and the practice of helping the poor has roots in many civilizations and religions of the world.
A subjective technological tool in the field of social work is the social report, the social history, the social record, the social diagnosis, the intervention project, the follow-up sheets, among others. At present, social work also develops its action in the so-called third sector (associations, foundations, groups and NGOs) and to a lesser extent in private enterprise.

The starting point of the paper is to define social pedagogy in the context of the HHH program; it then examines the different social backgrounds with respect to child protection in the two models of society in question, reflecting on some of their similarities and differences, as well as the different levels of professionalization in child care in the two traditions. We then describe findings that would support the merging of the two ways of working, to reinforce some current social work practices and offer new interpretations of improving the quality of care in the UK.
The findings of this article will be complemented by a future paper that will focus on the empirical aspects and learnings from the HHH program: ‘Social pedagogy in the UK. An experience in fostering. Reflections on learning from the Head, Heart, Hands Program.”
