The ICARE project should impact directly (or not) on a number of actors who could use the newly established framework in order to further develop transparency and recognition policies in the specific field or undertake a recognition process on an individual basis.

Generally speaking, those below are the
main target groups of the project:

  • Vocational education and training providers (expected impact: knowledge development and improvement of quality standards and effectiveness of training)

  • Job placement centres/services (expected impact: improvement of quality standards and effectiveness in job placement activities)

  • Qualification awarding authorities at the sectoral level (expected impact: improvement of quality standards; increase of the cooperation with other qualification awarding authorities and VET providers/job placement agencies in Europe)

  • Individuals engaged in vocational training and on formal, non-formal or informal learning paths in the field of personal care and social sector, especially if taking advantage of geographical mobility, namely:

  1. Workers in the personal care and social work sector willing to increase their opportunities of achieving the validation/recognition of prior learning and to develop their careers across Europe

  2. Adults in continuing training and young people undertaking initial vocational training and apprentices willing to increase their opportunity to achieve recognised qualifications across Europe, thanks to the accumulation of learning outcomes

  3. Migrant workers willing to increase their employability and to enter the labour market in European countries

  • Institutions providing personal care and social services, namely: Hospitals, cooperatives, social enterprises, and family (expected impact: better quality of delivered services and increased transparency of workers’ competences and qualifications)

  • Local, regional and national authorities and those institutions appointed for ECVET application (expected impact: adoption and implementation of tested methodologies/models for ECVET implementation)
