The Experimentation phase is starting in Italy





The Value Plus project aims to facilitate the professional mobility of home carers  within Europe  (thanks to ECVET credits) and to increase the quality of care services addressed to partially or totally not self-sufficient people;

The EXPERIMENTATION PHASE of the Value Plus project aims to test the tools and procedures for identifying and validating the competences acquired by home carers through working experiences (without specific professional training) and to identify a method of conversion into ECVET credits.

The tools to evaluate and certify the professional skills acquired through work and / or personal experiences will be tested on 100 beneficiaries / home carers

The Testing phase is starting in Spain!




Dear all,

We get in touch with you to offer you the opportunity to participate in the European Value Plus Project led by the Rovira i Virgili University on the professionalization of carers for the elderly at home.

This project is aimed at people, who, like you, have accredited a unit of competence, of the professional qualification of Sociosanitary Assistance to people at home, in a call for evaluation and accreditation of professional competencies.

The purpose of this project is to experiment a method of evaluation and certification of professional skills, acquired working in the field of home care services, which allows the mobility of workers in the different countries of the European Union.

This experimentation will be carried out in different institutes of the Department of Education, located in Barcelona and Salt (Girona).

The people attending this project will have to dedicate about 2 hours to the project and will have to move to the Institute near the municipality of residence (Barcelona or Salt) and will receive a certificate of participation in the international project, issued jointly by the Rovira i Virgili University (Tarragona), as well as for the other European partners in the project, Italy, France and Romania.

In case you are interested, please fill out the following form.

The project coordinator of Rovira i Virgili University will get in touch with you.

Thank you very much in advance.

ECVET and Learning Outcomes



What are Learning Outcomes?


Learning outcomes are defined in the Recommendation of the European Parliament and of the Council on the establishment of the EQF, and in a similar ECVET Recommendation, as “statements of what a learner knows, understands and is able to do on comple­tion of a learning process, and which are defined in terms of knowledge, skills and competence”. Learning outcomes are usually developed as a part of the process of designing and building qualifications, and can be achieved, by individual learners, through various different learning pathways, modes of delivery and learning contexts (formal, non-formal and informal).

How are Learning Outcomes Described?

Whilst the European definition of learning outcomes uses the terms knowledge, skills and competence, as a common denominator, learning outcomes are often described using terminology or descriptors already in place across different European countries, regions and sectors. Once developed, learning outcomes are usually grouped together to form units, according to one or more common criteria (for example, linguistic, occupational or technical nature; complementary competences; level of learning). Units are then brought together to form whole qualifications. Decisions on the grouping of learning outcomes remain with the competent institutions in each country.

How are Learning Outcomes used for ECVET and Geographical Mobility?

In terms of geographical mobility, ECVET targets the improved recognition of learning outcomes, enabling individuals to fully integrate mobil­ity-related achievements into new or existing learning pathways, recognising and making visible that which they have learned abroad. Successful implementation of ECVET requires that qualifications be described using learning outcomes, with many of the technical components of ECVET underpinned by their use:

  • in some European countries, the achievement of learning outcomes results in credit being awarded, following a process of validation, with such credit often contributing to the achievement of a qualification or award.
  • in other countries, where unit-based qualifications are not in use, or where qualifications systems do not allow for credit accumulation or transfer, learning outcomes can be developed specifically for mobility purposes, with activities recognised as a part of the curriculum, yet with achievements often viewed as extra-credit.

In all cases learning outcomes should be agreed in advance, and communicated to all parties, with direct reference made in the learning agreement.
