EDuCARE COMPARE is a further development of EDuCARE (2004) and EDuCARE QUALITY (2005), two projects we have already carried out within the framework of a Leonardo da Vinci programme. EDuCARE COMPARE is going to enable 18 students attending a Secondary Training College for Kindergarten Teachers (BAKIP) in Feldkirch, Austria, to do a three week placement in childcare establishments in various EU- countries. We have already gained lots of precious experiences with our partners in Brighton (UK) , and Dublin (IRL) and we are very fond that we will also be able to send some students to Sweden this year where they will have the chance to work in childcare establishments in which English is used as working language. All the services our students are going to visit cater for children between 0 and 4 and between 1 1/2 and 6 years respectively.
Aims and objectives:
We want our students to think in terms of the European dimension, to gain practical experience with new models and concepts of childcare and thus to strengthen their vocational competence and their educational skills. Our students are supposed to critically reflect and evaluate their experiences and to summarize them in kind of a “comparative study” featuring similarities and differences in the organisation of childcare in UK, IRL, SE and A.
