This complex and accelerating situation is radically impacting upon the role of professionals working on DV and VAWG interventions, giving rise to an emerging occupational role of the Domestic Violence Coordinator (DVC) - a professional who works in DV and VAWG issues. This occupational role extends beyond, for instance, social workers, psychologists, lawyers, health care professionals, etc. Furthermore, there is a common need for many EU member states to develop a certification scheme for the role of DVC.
Aim & Objectives
Develop a detailed Qualification Profile
Develop European Core Curriculum according to Qualification Profile
Implement and pilot a blended learning course for DVC leading to certification
