Developing a Quality Plan for Prevention Science Education and Training In Europe

Zveřejnil: Mgr. Lenka Šťastná Ph.D. | Poslední úprava: 25.10.2014

The Science for Prevention Academic Network (SPAN) is funded by the European Commission and involves 32 institutions across 25 European Countries. SPAN aims to improve the integration of prevention science in the higher education sector and to improve skill mobility across Europe. One objective was to outline a quality plan for prevention science in higher education, setting out a set of core skills and competencies for the prevention science workforce.

Methods Results from the SPAN European survey of prevention science education and training provision and gaps were summarised, and considered alongside existing quality frameworks, in the development of a draft quality plan for higher level skills and competencies for prevention science in Europe. Results Existing prevention science education and training provision was further developed in some countries (e.g. Croatia) than others, and was largely embedded in other courses (e.g. Public Health, Mental Health Promotion). There was no consistent coverage of core skills and competencies for prevention science as specified in existing quality frameworks (e.g. US SPR Standards), and survey respondents consistently identified gaps in existing provision. Conclusions In a draft quality plan we specify higher level skills and competencies for prevention science in Europe, and recommend that institutions review existing provision against this new quality framework. Looking forward, a final part of the SPAN project will support some institutions to develop an action plan to implement the quality plan, and set within the European Credit Accumulation and Transfer System (ECTS) to facilitate student mobility in Europe.
