Comments: Our college is a national institute for social educators offering general courses in education, which means that students gain qualifications across the whole of the social and pedagogical fields. These include the education of children and young people in day-care institutions, young people and adults with special needs and elderly people. The aim of the course is described in a law passed by the National Department of Education; the law is written in very general terms, but defines the parameters within which the final exams must be assessed. The institute has to devise a curriculum showing how the aims of the course can be realised.
