Marketing Text This publication presents 3 lifelong learning models in the field of education for senior service sector based on flexible teaching methodology. When the professionalization, standardisation of core tasks and quality measures are introduced in the sectoral services, updated and actual content together with flexible methodologies are the key factors helping the work places and whole systems coping with challenges and meeting the needs of the upcoming cohorts of users.
We introduce 3 good practices (CVET models)originating from Denmark, Italy and Portugal.
The first case is an example of flexible CVET methodology combining different educational areas for competence development of care staff in an Open Workshop Model. The model allows division of the course concept into smaller entities based on achievement of concrete learning objectives.
The second example presents a good solution how to target the informal carers - migrant employees - by flexible educational offer which prepares them to professional work in interpersonal settings where different cultural or value agendas are important. Methodically the concept is constructed as well as an open learning model with smaller modules adapted to the needs of the participants.
The third model is a carer training course concept targeted participants coming from disadvantaged societal groups. The course concept on one hand targets the agenda of social inclusion, on the other is relieving the staff shortages and recruitment problems in the sector.
