Marketing Text Due to demographic change in Western European societies, there is an increasing demand for personnel in the Elderly Care. This demand is often covered by personnel from abroad. The TOI project “AMiCo – Assessment of Migrants’ Competences in the Elderly Care” addresses this fact. Within the 2 years of its duration, the project develops a web site with country specific and vocational specific information, featuring a self assessment tool (AMiCo tool) for assessment of vocational competences in the Elderly Care. The site and tool particularly address elderly care givers wishing to work abroad (mainly Germany/Italy), but are also of great use to employers, vocational organizations and key actors of the labor market. The AMiCo tool provides the elderly care givers with comprehensive feedback regarding their level of vocational competences and gives them recommendations for the acquisition of supplementary competences which are necessary for the aspired activity.
Description The website ist relevant for the users of the AMiCo Self-assessment tool because it gives information about the qualifications in the elderly care sectors in the different countries involved in the project, the recognition of qualification, vocational trainings and language trainings, their duration and costs, upskilling opportunities in the different destination countries, labour market situation, the types of services existing. The website gives also information about the objectives of the project and about the organizations involved.
Target group Persons who want to work in the elderly care sector, employment agencies, organizations and operators of old people's homes and nursing facilities, market labour actors, training and consultation providers.
