Working group to develop new diaconal training
Translation: Klara Balicza
Experts in the fields of education, theology, and diaconia met on 2 February 2018 for the first meeting of a working group commissioned with the task of developing innovative and practice-oriented training programmes in the field of social work and the helping professions. The project is a joint venture of the University of Szeged, the Gál Ferenc College, and the Lutheran Theological University. It is funded by the Operative Programme for the Development of Human Resources (EFOP).
The working group is also laying the groundwork for a new study programme to train theologically educated social workers to serve in diaconal institutions. We hope to launch this programme at the Lutheran Theological University in 2019.
