UPgrading CARe service with INnovative skills certification, e-learning and matchinG systems. In an ageing Europe and with progressive digitalization of services, families need a new professional figure whom they can trust and who can support them in the use of new systems for the care of the person: the Professional Home Care Worker (HCW). These workers are often low skilled migrants, experiencing difficulties in integrating in the labor market and society. UPCARING aims at developing an innovative system which integrates the certification of the competences by outlining a European framework of competences for the HCW, by adopting an innovative prior learning validation system and identifying a learning scheme based on principles of flexibility, e-learning and a blended approach. It will also develop specific tools to help implement those outcomes in different EU countries (after being validated in Italy, Spain, Lithuania and UK) and also propose some policy recommendations.
