Title Job Rotation Red Cross Professionals
Project Number AT/12/LLP-LdV/VETPRO/158082
Project Type Mobility - Professionals in Vocational Education and Training VETPRO
Individual Participation Not possible
The "Job Rotation Red Cross Professionals" (JR-PRO) project had the primary objective to enable professionals holding key positions within the Red Cross (RC) to gain experience within their professional areas in another EU country.
Within the Mobility Measure – VETPRO -, the project facilitated RC professionals to increase their competences and to further develop their professional skills according to an individual training plan.
The project aimed to develop a high level of exchange between professionals within the organisation, to foster European cooperation between partners and their professionals and to integrate the awareness of the European dimension into their daily work. Furthermore, it increased the intercultural awareness and improved the work of all parties involved.
The benefit of participating in the project was for both the individual beneficiary as well as for the participating organisation as such. In concrete terms, this means that RC professionals had the possibility to join and work in another European Union National Society (EUNS), either on upcoming projects or in the daily work. Through the placement the beneficiary got familiar with strategies and programmes as well as the operational procedures and process of the hosting organisation and increased his/her knowledge and experience, also to the benefit of his/her own organisation. The outcome was an experience and knowledge exchange between the European partners.
The project duration was 12 months, starting in June 2012. In this period of time two staff members of the ARC benefited from the project.
