European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET) is a new European instrument to promote mutual trust and mobility in vocational education and training. It enables students to choose more individual learning pathways to reach their qualification. It makes it easier to recognise the learning achievements gained in other contexts. In PRO CARING project the partner countries will formulate modules/units for students who will have their placement abroad. The content of units = learning outcomes will be described as Knowledge, Skills and Competence following the EQF levels.
Students from partner countries will test the units in one partner country abroad. Students’ individual learning pathways will in the end of project be described in a booklet.
The work placement representatives will have an important role in describing the skills needed in placements. The students’ studies and experiences will be recognized as part of her/his qualification.
The project will increase the knowledge of Educational System between partner countries. Understanding of the structure and content of the study programmes in the field of caring is essential for future cooperation.
