Since the recent wars in the middle east, more and more refugees try to find a safe place in Turkey and Europe. Lots of these migrants, with a (very) different cultural background, will have to integrate in the society of their ‘new home country’. This will not happen automatically, but needs an investment. Education is a key part of the integration process for migrants with two areas of particular importance: helping migrants speak the local language is a vital step for their entry into the job market. Another crucial factor in integration is employability. Normally very difficult for refugees (even for highly educated) since the requirements regarding vocational skills and competences are normally (very) different in their country of origin.
The ageing of the EU’s population is likely to result in considerable demands for a range of new services, as an increasing proportion of the population becomes frail and suffers from declining physical and mental health. This is not only the case by the ‘original’ population, but also relevant for the ‘first generation migrants’ with a growing demand of culturally sensitive health care for all immigrants.
That’s where two ‘problems’ might lead to one solution. The Inventory for Care à la carte (IFCALC) project will be the first step of a two stage project and focusses on development of an efficient/tailor fit VET health care education for refugees by development/ integration of the ‘à la carte’ tool into each partners local or national education system resulting in efficient health care education for this specific target group, nationally recognized diploma’s and easier integration into society.
With this 14 months project we want to compare health care vocational education and training (VET) at the partner countries, discover the possibilities for 'tailor made' health care education to refugees and make an inventory of the requirements necessary for adoption of the 'à la carte’ tool for this type of education in all partner countries. This will result in a Intellectual Output with the evaluation of each partner analysis of the possibilities of implementation of the 'à la carte' tool in their national/local health care education system for education to refugees. The contents of IO1 will be used for a next KA2 project: 'implementation of the 'Care à la carte' tool in partners health education system for refugees. To be started in 2019.
The partnership exists of 5 experienced organisations with regards to health care and refugee education and are situated in countries with large quantities of refugees (DE, DK, NL and TR). All partners know each other form other cooperation’s and mutual preparation of this application. Each partner will bring in relevant associate partners from local governments, health care providers and refugee organisations. This will guarantee relevant information (input and feedback).
