The reason of the Erasmus+ project: “Eldicare: Matching skills in a growing European Silver Economy” emerges from the latest CEDEFOP Skills Panorama findings (12/2016) on the skills mismatch in the Elderly Care Sector. Adaptation to an ageing society requires enhanced efforts from all to maintain older peoples' sustained social inclusion. It also requires creating age friendly environments, including the mainstreaming of accessibility, and products and services that can be used by all. ICT is also essential as it enables integrated person-centered care, with more focus on prevention, early detection and independent living. Our project aims to offer a pathway out of the grey market for atypical/undeclared elderly care givers, through education and training in ICT & health applications, modernizing the way elderly care is provided by designing two fresh market-driven Curricula responding to the needs of this special demographics group and their families and closed ones.

Platform

In this section, at a later stage of EldiCare project, we will explore the potential for embedding open source platforms, like Moodle, e-twinning, which are specifically conducive for e-learning.

The project on line platform will fulfil the following functions:

  • Provide information about the project activities and outputs (curricula, training materials, documents, questionnaires, reports, e-toolkits, info days, conferences) and will contain promotional content (videos, newsletters) via the website providing easy access to a broad and varied audience
  • Facilitate engagement and participation by end users (students, teachers, existing professionals who want to refresh their skills) via e-learning and digital training activities (virtual classes and individual learning elements)

We are going to focus on material that is going to be attractive for a-typical and undeclared workers in order to attract them into the formal elderly care sector. The e-portfolio of digital resources developed for learners will be repackaged and provided online for self-directed and individual learning. These state of the art learning materials will be openly accessed through the online platform by any citizen interested in learning these curricula or elements of them and may provide useful resources particularly for existing professionals working in the elderly care sector who want to refresh and updated their skills, without the opportunity of attending F2F training.

The adaptation and repackaging of our learning resources for wider target groups and especially for disadvantaged groups with limited access to skills training (adult learners, single mothers, unemployed elderly care professionals) will also aim to directly and effectively respond to our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion policy and access to all commitment
