The article shows the system of prospective social workers’ training to sustainable development of social groups on the basis of integrated system-synergetic approach. It has been shown that the training of prospective social workers in this direction is of great importance nowadays both for Ukraine and other countries, because no matter what level the society reaches, it always has elements that break its general harmony by practicing deviant, aggressive or self-destructive behavior, that have negative impact on its whole state. It has been proved in the study that sustainable development of social groups is possible on condition progressive sustainable development of personality as the subject of life and responsible social subject as well as a group as integrity. It has been substantiated that the system of social pedagogical activity (that suggests synergetic focus of social-educational, informational, preventive, correctional and rehabilitative activities on encouraging social groups to sustainable development) provides holistic effect on axiological, cognitive, volitional spheres of various social groups’ representatives with a view to develop their subjectivity as well as promotes them both to individual and joint creative and value-oriented activity for improving social life. It has been also shown that the system of prospective social workers’ training to sustainable development of social groups (which has axiological, cognitive, activity and creativity-oriented subsystems and is being implemented through academic, educational, practical, research activities, self-education and volunteering) ensures their moving to the level of self-development as well as gaining the ability to implement the system of work towards sustainable development of various social groups.
