본 연구의 목적은 현장에서 원하는 신입사회복지의 자질과 신입사회복지사 양성을 위해 교육현장에 바라는 점에 대한 탐색이다. 사회복지의 오랜 역사동안 많은 학자들은 실천현장과 교육현장이 밀접하게 연관되어야 한다고 주장해왔음에도 불구하고, 특히 우리나라에서는 두 영역간의 본질과 관계에 대한 연구는 거의 없었기 때문이다. 본 연구를 수행하기 위해서 충남지역의 채용 담당자를 대상으로 한 심층면접과 전수조사를 통한 설문조사방법을 병행하여 진행하였다. 연구 결과, 사회복지 마인드라고 불리는 전문적 윤리와 태도가 신입사회복지사 채용에 있어 매우 중요한 영역이며, 구체적인 개입기술보다는 문서작업, 프로그램 개발 및 평가와 같은 실용적인 수준의 지식과 기술을 요구하고 있었다. 즉 사회복지 마인드와 관련해서는 엄격하고 전문적인 수준을, 사회복지 지식과 기술과 관련해서는 일반주의 실천가 수준을 요구하고 있음을 알 수 있었다.


The long-standing history of social work development has proved that solid relationships between practical field and academic, especially, educational field have a critical role in implementing adequate social work practice, which is derived from the intrinsic nature of social work: applied profession. Nevertheless, systematic studies on the nature and mechanism between two fields have been little conducted so far in Korean social work profession. In this contexts, this study is to explore the qualities or characteristics and curricula required by practice field for social workers newly entered into social work field of practices. Questions about the qualities and characteristics for new social workers were asked to the social work administrators in the institutions who are in charge of recruiting with survey-typed quantitative ones and in-personal deep-interview typed qualitative ones. Following is the result brought out from the research. First, the results show that the professional ethics and attitudes casually called the mind are considered as the most important qualities for the new social workers, not the professional knowledge and skills. Second, among the several skills suggested for new social worker, the basic administrative skills such as paper work related one, program development and evaluation, statistical analysis abilities are more favored than specific professional intervention skills. Third, consequently, the field of practice is strongly asking the educational field to emphasize those skills and knowledge as official curricula such as social work ethics and philosophy. In short, those results imply that newly-entering social workers should have solid social work minds and ethics with general social work skills and knowledge.
