Abstract english

In 1977 there was a radical reform of Swedish universities. According to

the reform the six independent schools of social work were incorporated

in universities or university colleges. At the same time a new discipline

“social work” was established. The independent schools of social work

had curricula decided by the government. With the reform this was

decentralised. There was a clear risk of getting very divergent study

programs and differences in quality. In order to try to get at least some

form of common standards the Association was founded in 1977.

During the first years much attention was paid to efforts in getting

common standards. In the 80s all the programs experienced financial

cuts and the Association acted as a pressure group towards the

government to obtain more funds. Here the Association demanded an

evaluation of the programs with the implicit aim to show that quality

requirements could not be met without better funding. Efforts of further

training of social workers were also on the agenda during the 80ies. The

“liberty reform” of Swedish universities during the first years of the 90ies

put once again the question of common standards on the agenda. The

last years of the 90ies were characterised by new financial cuts and new

demands for an evaluation on a national level. Such an evaluation took

place and as a result the Association obtained funds from the National

Board of Health and Welfare to launch three national projects aiming at

increasing quality and more equal standards. This was first real

cooperation between the schools.
