Percepción del Impacto de la Covid-19 en los Profesionales de la Educación Social que Trabajan con Menores
Perception of the Impact of Covid-19 on Social Education Professionals Working with Minors
Covid-19 has had an impact worldwide and the education sector has not been spared. Social and educational action in Spain has as its reference the professionals of social education who develop their professional activity in different areas and the sector of childhood and youth is one of the predominant ones. With this article, we aim to understand the perception of the impact that the has had on social education professionals working with children. The methodological approach is mixed, using a questionnaire created ad hoc, self-administered through the Internet. The sample is nationwide (Spain), 462 professionals. The results reflect how the work activity has been declared essential and has not involved contractual modifications, although there have been labor changes in the development of the work. Likewise, the workload is increased and the possibility of meeting the objectives set is not too high. We also address issues relating to job satisfaction and the digital tools and skills of the minors with whom these professionals work. We compared the data with previous results and concluded the necessary provision of more personal and material resources for professionals and services and the need to provide digital tools and competences among minors.
