Quality assurance in the social care sector: The role of training
The CEDEFOP research review n°7 subject is Quality Insurance in Social Care Sector and mainly the role of training. The focus group discussions in five Member States representing a different social model tradition,
namely Germany, Sweden, Portugal, Poland and the UK, served to point out the latest changes in our European societies and to define the generic competences required for responding to them adequately. These competences have been further analysed by studying 18 innovative training and lifelong learning cases focusing on their quality and transferability aspects.
