DELAROSE (Delivering E Learning Accreditation to Reduce Occupational Stress in Employment) is a Transfer of Innovation Project which builds upon the work carried out by ROSE (Reducing Occupational Stress in Employment) which was a Development of Innovation project. ROSE is an open source self-help programme for workers in the health and social care sectors in Europe to manage work related stress at an individual and environmental level.
The consultative work with the sector carried out during the development of ROSE and the feedback received from the sector once ROSE had been implemented indicated that many participants would like to receive some form of educational recognition for their use of the ROSE website and particularly the reading and exercises the website encourages users to do.
As a result of this feedback the DELAROSE project aims to transfer the established ROSE programme to an accredited and sustainable programme of learning for health and social care workers in Europe. Whilst retaining the original open access ethos established by ROSE, the DELAROSE project will establish an ECVET/ ECTs equivalency accrediting framework to facilitate the formal recognition of learning across the sector in Europe and between Higher Education Institutions (both 3rd level and VET) as a mechanism to facilitate integrated learning and enhanced mobility across Europe.
The DELAROSE project partners included educational institutions involved in the training of health and social care professionals, mental health and social care service providers and representative organisations within the field from across Europe. The partners are: Waterford Institute of Technology, (Ireland); King’s College, University of London (United Kingdom); Karl Franzens Univertsity, Graz (Austria); Scuola Universitaria Professionale della Svizzera Italiana (Switzerland); European Association of Service Providers for People with Disabilities (Belgium); National Federation of Voluntary Bodies (Ireland); Cluain Training and Enterprise Centre (Ireland); Pro mente steiermark GmbH (Austria); University of Lincoln, (United Kingdom).
The DELAROSE project formally began on November 1st, 2014 with its launch meeting taking place in Dublin on November 8th, 2014. The project will run for two years, finishing at the end of October, 2015.
