Aim & Objectives

The EU-VET CARE project aims to design and implement innovative vocational training on the appropriate delivery of health-care for migrant/refugee children. More specifically, it aims to strengthen key competencies in vocational education and training and to develop high quality skills among people working in the delivery of health care to these vulnerable populations. 

Thus, the specific objectives of the program are:

  1. to enhance professional capacity to respond to the needs and specific health/social issues that most affect migrant/refugee children
  2. to enhance partner capabilities so as to develop and deliver training to professionals working with migrant/refugee children
  3. to increase awareness of the relevant professional communities and organizations on the training
  4. to raise awareness about the necessary interdisciplinary collaboration.

The training that will be deployed includes interdisciplinary and specialized training packages, an e-learning platform, interactive training activities, courses etc. It will provide opportunities for continuous professional development of the target groups (e.g. physicians, psychologists, social workers and cultural mediators) addressing the most important aspects of health care for migrant/refugee children and unaccompanied minors such as: Children’s rights/protection systems, effective communication, mental/physical health needs, prevention, child trafficking, age assessment, professionals’ burnout etc.
