Clece backs professional skills certification for 5,000 care workers in Andalusia

  • This is the first collaboration agreement signed by a company in Andalusia to recognise professional experience
  • The agreement means the skills of the company’s domiciliary care staff can now be certified

Madrid, May 2015 – Clece, the leading multiservices company, has signed a collaboration agreement with the Regional Government of Andalusia’s Department of Education, Culture and Sport, and the Confederation of the trade union Comisiones Obreras, to accredit the Certificate of Professionalism for the Provision of Domiciliary Care. Clece thus becomes the first company in Andalusia to have its own staff training agreement.

With this agreement, 5,000 places can now be made available for domiciliary care staff in the Andalusia region to obtain professional certification. In so doing, the company is helping its staff obtain professional certification, boosting team morale and adapting to new needs and legal requirements as they arise for this group of professionals.

Accordingly, the new agreement guarantees compliance with article 8 of Organic Law 5/2002 of 19 June, on qualifications and professional training, which regulates the recognition, evaluation, accreditation and registration of professional qualifications, and by which all domiciliary care assistants need to have their skills certified. This certification is obtained with the professional skills acquired through work experience or non-formal training. To that end, the system that has been established involves three stages: advice, assessment and registration of the skills units successfully completed by participants.
To comply with the objectives of the agreement, Clece will be making a major investment, both financially and in terms of human resources, providing expert advisors to provide as much help as possible for domiciliary care assistants to obtain their Certificate of Professionalism for the Provision of Domiciliary Care.

This agreement is a great step forward for all domiciliary care assistants, as a large percentage do not yet have this certificate. “This agreement shows not just Clece’s commitment to the care provided, but also the steps taken to ensure the best for the workforce,” commented Gabriel Vázquez, HR Manager for Clece in Andalusia.
