European Skills and Competencies for Social and Health Care 2
Start date: Jun 1, 2016,
End date: May 31, 2018
The Social and Healthcare consortium consists of 4 Finnish VET organizations: Kouvola Region Vocational Institute KSAO, Salpaus Further Education in Lahti , Lahti Diaconia Institute and Porvoo Vocational College. KSAO is the main coordinator. Each of the Finnish members of the consortium have invited their European partner organizations to take part in the project. These partner organizations include 2 English colleges, 3 German colleges, a Hungarian consortium of colleges, an intermediary partner in Malta, a Danish college and a Dutch college. The project will be carried out in 2016-2018. The objective of the project is to maintain and extend the international network in social and healthcare. The network’s purpose is to share know-how and good practices and enable the members of the network to develop their competency and improve the quality of education. 45 students will be sent abroad for work placements and 25 staff members will be sent for job-shadowing periods abroad to European countries. The mobility users will acquaint themselves with the host country’s working methods, work procedures, work safety practices, multicultural working environments and different ways of interacting with foreign customers, patients and colleagues. With the current inflow of immigrants into Europe it is of utmost importance that multiculturalism skills can be improved in European social and healthcare VET. One of the aims is that the students diversify and enhance their know-how and gain confidence in their future field of work and also gain insight in how to act in a multicultural environment. The staff who travel in the project gain new knowledge in their own field. They will also get more knowledge about European VET systems. The network enables them to share good practices to other members of the network. In this way all the consortium members gain new means to developing social and healthcare training. The language and lifelong learning skills are improved for all project participants. The results of the project will be shared on the partners’ web sites as well as on the project blog homepage.
