CrediCare 01.10.2011–30.09.2013




Quality-oriented Accreditation of Vocational Learning Outcomes in Health Care and Nursing


The overall objective of the CrediCare project is the transnational transfer, implementation and testing of a procedure for the description and comparative level assessment of units of learning outcomes in health care and nursing. The procedure in question is designed in a way that makes it possible to apply the tool in different VET systems and to achieve comparable results. 

The project activities are based on the methodology of the so-called equivalence check, i.e. the Learning Outcome Matrix (LOM) and the Module Level Indicator (MLI), whose purpose is to analyse vocational learning outcomes in terms of content and to situate them within the reference levels of the European Qualifications Framework (EQF). This approach allows for a transparent description and evaluation of learning outcomes against a valid reference, using the EQF levels as a quality standard.
