The State today plays an important role in social welfare work. With the changing concept of "welfare" has come an appreciation of the importance of the university trained "counsellor" in welfare.
Post-graduate bursaries are awarded each year for the Diploma in Social Science. The course is a two-year one at the School of Social Science at Victoria University for graduates who wish to specialise in welfare work in the Departments of Justice, Social Security, Maori Affairs, or the Child Welfare Branch of the Department of Education.
There is also a Psychological Service of the Department of Education in which psychologists with teacher training specialise in work with handicapped and gifted children.
