EccThe European Care Certificate (ECC), financed by the European Commission’s Leonardo Da Vinci fund, is a pilot project aiming to tackle the increasing number of unqualified carers working within the sector.

Running across Europe until September 2008, the Certificate, formally known as the European Care Licence (ECL), aims to create a common entry level standard for care workers throughout Europe.

Here at Care Academy we’re keeping a close eye on the development of the ECC pilot and our products will be fully updated to incorporate the results. So watch this space!
