The European Care Certificate (ECC) is a Europe-wide qualification that has been developed to cover the basic knowledge that is required for an individual to work in a health and social care setting.
The European Care Certificate is active in many countries across Europe. Check the list below and find out if the ECC is available in your country.
Social Carer, Cyprus
I have been working as a social carer in the Cyprus Paraplegic Organization for two years and I am happy with the work I have undertaken. Over the course of two years, I have attended several trainings/seminars, one of which was the training to get prepared and pass the ECC exam. Through the program and the exam I was able to self-evaluate my training as a social carer, learn things I didn’t know before, develop as a care worker and improve in some areas of my work.

If you are working in the care sector, you have to prove professionalism. ECC training helped me acquire a proper understanding and basic knowledge of how to be a good care-worker, how to deliver quality services to people I work with, and how to prevent and avoid job-related risks. A benefit of the ECC is that it is in line with the basic European care legislation and standards. I highly recommend ECC to all those who intend to work in the care sector.
The ECC training taught me to provide support based on the needs of the person, and respecting human rights and values (dignity, privacy, independence and respect) in line with the UN CRPD. Thanks to it, I now provide guidance to parents/caregivers of a person with disabilities, even some employees in the social and educational field. Most importantly, it made became a good caregiver for my little girl with disabilities.
Social carer, Cyprus
I have passed the ECC exam 5 years ago. At the time, I was working as social carer in a organization providing support for people with disabilities in Limassol but after the successful results, I have managed to find work in an organization in Denmark and I live and work there since then. ECC have changed my life.
Social carer, Serbia
I started in Italy, continued in Germany and am currently working in Austria thanks to the ECC Certificate.
