To satisfy the demand for services and products in this kind of tourist fruition, health tourism offers concrete and expanding job opportunities to a large number of people, in a very broad and quite diversified range of activities and qualifications across European countries and regions. It is often not clearly defined in terms of learning outcomes but also frequently regulated, in terms of access to the training and qualification opportunities, in a way that in fact is very limiting the mobility beyond the VET systems' “borders”. There are serious confines of national/regional VET systems, barriers to the mobility within a particular VET system and obstacles to mobility outside formal education - these shall be tackled to enhance permeability.Thus, the project partners (VET coordinators and providers, research centres, enterprises and non profit associations operating in the field of health tourism, having clear competence on tourism and on VET at local to national level) have agreed that an intervention to elevate transparency and recognise the learning outcomes characterizing health tourism professions, applying and implementing the European tools and frameworks EQF and ECVET, could have a very significant impact.Major activities at this aim are focused on the MoU ECVET contents (definition of the professional field in terms of learning outcomes, mapping it onto the EQF via national qualifications frameworks and systems, designing qualifications in transferable units of learning outcomes with allocation of credit points), and on its enforcement (Learning Agreements, Credits Awarding, Transfer Validation and Accumulation, through related VET programmes with flexible devices for validation, transfer and recognition of learning outcomes achieved in formal, informal and non formal contexts), as well as on the mainstreaming and multiplication of these results. According to our expectations these activities will enhance the mobility of health tourism professionals and improve their skill levels, contributing to the emergence of generally accepted qualifications and training standards.The foreseeable impact of the project on the target groups is significant. During the project at least 120 health tourism professionals across Europe, of which 60 in Hungary and 60 in other participating countries are affected, and also after the project is finished, the influence is extended through valorization activities targeted on the public, sectoral decision-makers an on end-users, at local, regional, national, and European level.
