FICE Bulgaria an organization that provides training for adults, working in the field of social sevices for children and adults. In order to continue to increase the quality of the provided training, the association needs to increase its expertise and broaden the number of topics continuously. Through its activities FICE-Bulgaria contributes to improving the quality of life of the children and adults, who are clients of different social services. The topic about the quality of social services is very relevant at the moment, because of the acceptance of the new Law on social services in 2019 (entered into force in 2020). According to it, every social service is obliged to develop and implement its own quality management program. The topic is currently either not studied or studied to a very low extent in university programs for future social service managers, social workers, educators,pedagogues, etc. Continuous training on the topic is not available in Bulgaria. In order to meet the requirements of the new law, many professionals will need to increase their capacity in the field of the quality of social services.
FICE-Bulgaria will implement project "QUALITY 4 CARE", №2020-1-BG01-KA104-078553, funded by the Erasmus + Program of the EU.
