Aims, contents and method of the course

An increasing number of sociologists, which were involved in fields of job-integration has become obviously in the past decades. Especially Viennese organisations for youth people with so called "integrational problems" (e. g. : WAFF, Wienwork, WUK Monopoly, ... ) employed sociologists as counsellors.

Sociologists working for the public adminstration often do not do research themselves but prepare tenders for social-economic institutions. Preparing a tender requires additional skills, mainly in project-Management, procurement law and cost-calculation. These skills are taught and practically trained in the seminar.
