The core tasks of the Faculty of social work, University of Ljubljana, are education and research. Through undergraduate, graduate and permanent education, the Faculty offers knowledge and training for professional tasks and performances in social care and other fields where the knowledge and skills of social workers are needed. Ever since its establishment the School (as it is still unofficially called) has been a pillar (in some periods the only one) of the development of Slovenian social work and the field of social care in general. Teaching is based on scientific research. The Faculty has produced basic forms and methods of contemporary social work such as counselling, group work, community work, and work with families. Its achievements in voluntary work, action research, and qualitative research in general have played an important part in Slovenian social sciences. It has developed work with older people, women, young people, people in mental distress, disabled people, and ethnic minorities and contributed to innovations such as social first aid, home help, group homes, safe houses, and others. A significant part of study at the Faculty involves practical work and training in social work methods and skills. Students are involved in practical, research and developmental projects throughout their studies. Through its network of contacts across the world the Faculty has coordinated or participated in many international projects. It is a member of the International Association of Schools of Social Work (IASSW) and the European Association of Schools of Social Work (EASSW), the initiator of the Eastern European Subregional Association of Schools of Social Work (EEsrSSW), member of the International Consortium for Social Development (ICSD) and member of European Social Network (ESN) The Faculty publishes an academic journal of Social Work (Socialno delo), and a number of monographs and other books every year.
