Perspectives for the development of the social sector in Bulgaria

Project description









Cometa evolution is a European project co-financed by the European Commission, DG Education and Culture, Lifelong Learning Programme.

Its aim is to develop and test an agreement based upon ECVET for mutual acknowledgment of credits among partner organisations. The model is an adaptation of the one developed within LLP-LDV "Highlight the competences" but builds also on the results of LLP-LDVs "Care Talents" and "ECC", concerning validation of competences and basic skills. COMETA focus on geographical mobility at European level but also on professional mobility between different professional profiles of the social sector.

COMETA project aims to develop and test an agreement based upon ECVET for mutual acknowledgment of credits among partner organisations. The model is an adaptation of the one developed within LLP-LDV "Highlight the competences" but builds also on the results of LLP-LDVs "Care Talents" and "ECC", concerning validation of competences and basic skills.

COMETA focus on geographical mobility (between partner countries and within regions in the same country) but also on professional mobility between different professional profiles of the social sector, i.e. from child care to elderly or disabled care. It will identify a set of soft skills common to a cluster of social profession and development of tools and means for mutual recognition

The Consortium is multiplayer and involves partners that, coming from different backgrounds, have developed specific skills on training of care workers and VET training policies and practices.

The main expected outcome is the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding based on ECVET for mutual acknowledgment of credits among partners. This will have a positive impact in the quality of mobility (geographical - among EU countries/regions - and professional) of workers, as well as on supporting the development of ECVET based practices in partners’ countries.

AMiCo Project
Due to demographic change of Western European societies, there is an increasing demand for professional personnel in the Elderly Care which cannot be covered by personnel in the respective countries but makes necessary the immigration of professionals from abroad, often from Poland or Romania. But the heterogeneity of vocational education systems in Europe makes the assessment of qualifications difficult, hindering the professionals’ mobility. Therefore, Eastern European professionals wishing to work in Germany/Italy need information on possibilities of acknowledgement, further VET, requirements regarding the professional profiles in the receiving countries, and language trainings to prepare for the challenges they will face on the receiving labor market.


AMiCo aims at developing a multilingual informational web page and an ICT based self assessment tool (AMiCo tool) to provide the above mentioned crucial orientation. It draws on the results of two previous European projects (IQEA, Talenti di Cura) and focuses on the European priority of ECVET. The resulting internet tool will enable individuals working in the Elderly Care to assess professionally relevant experiences and competences that were acquired formally, informally or non-formally. The tool will produce transparency regarding professional profiles and fields of activity in the Elderly Care in the five countries involved. It will allow for the identification of correspondences/discrepancies, and will provide the individual user with recommendations regarding supplementary competences that should be acquired before migration. The hosting web page will comprise additional information and links to relevant organizations. The consortium comprises 7 partners from Germany, Italy, Poland, Romania and Bulgaria. All of them have expertise in the Elderly Care (curricula, practice), VET or/and realization of European projects. Several partners of the previous projects IQEA, Talenti di Cura and a current ECVET project are involved. 


The AMiCo consortium addresses Elderly Care professionals, organizations in the field of vocational education and advice, employers and key actors of the labor market (e.g. labor agency, job centers). Informational and sensitization activities also address policy-makers in order to raise awareness of ECVET and promote its implementation in the field of Elderly Care. As a result of the AMiCo, comprehensive instruments (web page, self assessment tool) for autonomous orientation by professionals, advice and training in vocational education, for development of curricula according to ECVET, and for orientation for employers, key actors in the labor market and policy makers will be at hand. The mobility of professionals within Europe and the implementation of ECVET in the countries involved will be practically promoted. AMiCo project results may be transferred to further countries and professional fields.
