The SHESPSS id divided into 8 Work packages (WP): In order to qualify the curriculum reform at University of Nis, Belgrade and Novi Sad listed in WP2, the partnership will develop base line studies and mapping of the social and labour market needs, including mapping of existing study programmes and mobility paths for students between study programmes. Also in WP1 the partnership will suggest future models for possible introduction of Qualification Standards for jobs and education in Serbia within social service delivery (WP1). To strengthen the capability of Serbian Universities to teaching in new and existing curriculum, the project will also contain teacher training (WP3). When new study programmes are developed, the project will perform quality control and prepare for accreditation of study programmes (WP 5 & WP7). The partnership will also pilot the developed study programmes and courses (WP4) and disseminate project results (WP6). WP8 contains the management activities.

Abstract
Kompleksnost socijalnog rada zahteva stalno unapređenje kako njegove teorije, tako i prakse. Značajan aspekt ovog razvoja je uvođenje standarda i kompetencija socijalnih radnika. U ovom radu prikazuju se i diskutuju standardi i kompetencije u oblasti usvajanjaznanja i veština socijalnog rada, kako u okviru formalnog obrazovanja socijalnih radnika, tako i u oblasti celoživotnog učenja.

Abstract
Kompetentni profesionalci u sistemu socijalne zaštite treba da unaprede kvalitet pružanja usluga i planiranja razvoja socijalne zaštite i drugih oblasti socijalne politike, pre svega imajući u vidu osetljive grupe stanovništva koje treba omoćati da iz pozicije marginalizacije, zavisnosti i pasivnog primanja socijalne pomoći iskorače kao aktivni učesnici u svetu rada i na polju drustveno angažovanog života.
