Period: From December 2007 to December 2009
In relations between states, the problem exists today that there are at present hardly any opportunities for reciprocal recognition and acknowledgement of training content and qualifications within the occupational group of medical assistants in Europe. Apart from isolated bilateral agreements between individual European countries, those who belong to this occupational group have no opportunity at present of practising their vocation in another European country and of acquiring the relevant authorisation to work, and this reduces the mobility of labour to a minimum.
Aim of the project
Ø Availability of a comparative framework for crediting and transparency in partner countries
Ø For the first time, diagnostic, therapeutic and care assistance professions become comparable; mutual recognition and crediting in this sector will be possible; labour market disparities within the partner countries can be levelled.
Ø For the first time, educational organisations will have a model of comparison and transparency with exact use and process descriptions, competence matrix and ECVET Certificate; they can adjust and implement their vocational educational programs according to ECVET.
Ø The developed ECVET model can be transferred to other sectors and educational focuses or content without major problems; educational institutions may generally adjust their educational programs according to ECVET; they will have a European-wide agreed transparency framework and a performance point system with a wide scope of usage.
