The Europe-wide mobility of employees is the political goal of numerous European Union policies, including those relating to employability and the tuning process (i.e. international coordination of competences and credits imparted by teaching in order to make curricula at universities comparable). Within this framework, the EEE4all project, developed by occupational therapists, aims to take education and employability into account. The consortium consists of 5 partner institutions: Hoogeschool Zuyd (NL), Linköping (SE), Sheffield Hallam (GB), ASH Berlin (DE) and the European Network for Occupational Therapists in Higher Education, ENOTHE (NL), and is financially supported by the European Union as a Life Long Learning Project over two years (142083-LLP-1-2008-1-NL-ERASMUS-ECDEM).
The aim of international module development is to promote the employability of disadvantaged people. An interdisciplinary approach is pursued in which teachers, students and practitioners from therapeutic professions, nursing, social work, education and training in childhood and public health work together. This enables students from different professional groups to promote the employability of their target groups, patients and clients.
