 ”Health care professionals mobility – VET” is an innovative and experimental project based on the theme of social professions. The target group consists of twelve young recent graduates, aged between 22 and 30 years, who have successfully completed, at an accredited VET school, a training program aimed at achieving the qualification of “Socio-healthcare operator” or “Social-care Operator” and intend, therefore, carry out an internship abroad within a year of their qualification.

They are “skilled professions in the health and social services”. The transnational partnership is composed by three partner countries, Spain, France and Ireland; there are three sending groups for four students lasting 10 weeks. Considering the high demand for employment of these operators, the project intends to work on the strong differential between the skills provided by the average training courses financed by at regional o private level and the skills requests from companies willing to take on, bridging the gap between the expected and actual occupational profiles and contributing, through the experience abroad, to identify the skills that increase their productivity.

The project provides a work-training programme: the training time starts before the departure with the cultural and pedagogical preparation, orientation and introduction to the experience to promote a previous knowledge on the destination country and type of work. The insertion will take place at health care facilities (such as private hospitals) and social structures (day care centers, nursing homes, home care, recovery community, group homes, residential communities).

The learner will increase his previous professional and transversal skills comparing with different work situations and will be encouraged and facilitated in its “competitiveness working” at European level recognized by the validation of the training and professional path through the validation device ECVET in its report to the EQF.
