Welcome to ICARE, the project dedicated to “Improving Mobility and Career Paths for Personal Care and Social Workers”.
Our objective was to support the full labour market integration and human capital development in Personal Care and Social Work by increasing interoperability among different countries and learning contexts.
The ICARE project was one of the ECVET Pilot Projects (2nd generation) funded by the European Commission and represented an experimental application of the ECVET system. During project lifetime, partners analysed existing qualification systems in the field of personal care and social work in their respective countries with the objective to develop a recognition model, thus encouraging mutual recognition of training and qualifications.
The ICARE project targeted those interested in the development of flexible training solutions, in facilitating mobility and access to work and in addressing the need for qualified professionals in the care sector (VET providers, labour market services and organisations in the field, social partners and authorities).
This website provides you with a detailed description of the project to better understand its aims and what can benefit you; news and regularly updated information on activities and results; background materials and developments in the field of ECVET conveyed to you in the ICARE Info centre; information to contact us.
The ICARE project started its activities on the 1st of January 2011 and presented its results in a final conference on the 31st of March 2013.
