Associate Degree

Social Educational Care Work

As an educator-coach, you help people with issues concerning residence, work, learning and leisure time. You can get started in all welfare sectors.

During your education you start by discovering who you are as an educator. Next, you get acquainted with several target groups, like young or elderly people, people with disabilities, with behavioural issues, who live in poverty, in foster care ... Every year you can do an internship with the same target group, or you can choose to have a completely new experience every time.

The city centre of Ghent is expecting nearly 80,000 students in the coming weeks. Therefore, starting Monday 7 September, the obligation to wear a face mask will be expanded to the student district. Wearing a mask will be mandatory for everyone aged 12 years or older in the Sint-Pietersnieuwstraat – Overpoort axis and adjacent streets. On top of that, the city calls on everyone to wear a face mask in other busy areas. That way, we continue to protect ourselves and others against the virus.
