Eldicare partnership launched on 1st December 2020 two training programmes:

“Training for A-typical Caregivers” &

 “ICT focused training for the elderly care sectoral providers”

 aiming to tackle the skills gap in the elderly care sector as a response to current market needs for well-trained professional elderly care providers.

The programmes were developed by:

  • Metropolitan College (AMC), Greece - Methodology Designer
  • AKMI Vocational Institute (AKMI SA), Greece - Project Coordinator
  • Social Action and Innovation Centre (KMOP), Greece
  • University of Malaga (UMA), Spain
  • Assistance Services (Asisttel), Spain
  • Staffordshire University (SU), UK
  • BQS GmbH Döbern (BQS), Germany
  • Skybridge, Greece – Platform Developer

Under the guidance of the Accreditation, Certification and Quality Assurance Institute (ACQUIN), the training programmes were reviewed in terms of quality – for the 1st time within an Erasmus+ project - by an Expert Committee and received international cross-border certification based on the European Quality Assurance Framework for higher education and vocational training (EQF, ESG, EQAVET, EQARF).

The international certification seal is recognition at EU-level standing for the quality of the training programmes:

  • responding to the demand for tech-literate elderly care professionals with the capacity to learn, use and evaluate online tools and e-health applications;
  • improving access to lifelong learning e-platforms, mainstreaming equal opportunities and inclusion into training;
  • increasing transparency and recognition of qualifications by introducing robust quality assurance mechanisms and clear guidelines for accreditation;
  • fostering employability of young people in the ageing sector, providing adequate tools that will better their working conditions;

The programmes will be accompanied by a „Work-Based Learning Scheme” adapted to a pandemic for Ageing CareGivers, that is going to provide the necessary linkage between VET Training and Actual Work.

Enrollment to the training programmes is free and open here:
