Proper Chance, 2011-2013
There is almost no occupational field that has as high a short-term need for highly qualified employees as the health and social care sector. The Proper Chance project is aimed at helping reduce the gap between supply and demand for qualified staff in the field of health and social care by supporting the implementation of the European Credit system for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET).
The project aims to increase the professional transferability and mobility of workers in the health and social care sector by fostering the use of ECVETs and supporting transparency and the recognition of learning outcomes and qualifications, including non-formal and informal learning.
Thus, the project rests on the idea of offering better employment opportunities for young people and the less-qualified. The project began in October 2011 and ended in September 2013. To find out more, go to the project website www.proper-chance.eu
