School social workers help students who have mental, physical, or emotional challenges reach their full academic and social potential. They usually work in school districts and educational settings.
School social workers build intervention strategies for a wide range of issues that school-aged children face (e.g. bullying, learning difficulties). They collaborate with parents, teachers, and school administrators to ensure children feel safe and happy. School social workers also identify and report on severe problems, such as child abuse and neglect.
School social workers usually have a degree in Social Work or Psychology. They have experience dealing with various problems that children and families face, and they can demonstrate effective problem-solving during a crisis. School social workers should also have excellent communication and listening skills as they interact with people from diverse backgrounds.
When crafting your own school social worker job description, make sure to include these skills and qualifications as requirements.
We are looking for an experienced school social worker to join our team. Your primary responsibility will be to identify mental or emotional issues that our students face and work with them through those challenges. You’ll also collaborate with parents and school staff to create coordinated intervention strategies (e.g. behavioral management).
To succeed in this role, you must have great communication and counseling skills. You should have the ability to connect and empathize with students and understand the root of their problems. If you are compassionate and you love helping others, we’d like to hear from you.
