Summary/Abstract: What is explored in this article are the issues of social competences of learners in care-educational institutions. The studies are presented of the level of social competences of the charges in child care homes in the intellectual norm and the charges with mild intellectual disability. The theoretical-cognitive research goal was recognizing and investigating the determinants of social competences in care-educational institutions. Moreover, the presented diagnosis of the level of the charges’ social competences and their determinants may contribute to prevention and levelling of social marginalization and might enhance higher standards in the functioning of child care homes. The studies shown in the article indicate that the lack of social competences of children and youth from care-educational institutions may result in many problems, also social ones – such as e.g. learned helplessness.
