Overcoming obstacles: Child care workers across the border

 

Recognition procedures prevent Dutch child care workers from being able to work abroad. This was revealed after several reports by the Service Grensoverschrijdende Arbeidsbemiddeling (Service Cross-border Employment mediation). This has led several parties in the region of The Netherlands / North Rhine Westphalia (Expertise Centre ITEM and the Service Grensoverschrijdende Arbeidsbemiddeling in particular) to cooperate on a pilot procedure, in order to examine whether partial recognition as Erzieher could be enabled for Dutch child care workers.
