Innovative Practices 2013 on Employment
Training carers for the elderly
|Name of Innovative Practice:|
|Organisation:||Training carers for the elderly|
Within this project, training of a carer takes 12 months and includes practical and theoretical instruction in care assistant work and in senior citizen care. Two job coaches support the young participants at work in various stations, organise internships and support them in their search for suitable employment.
The challenge between qualification and professional integration is to ensure that the participants are actually “job ready”. For these young adults, this transition is facilitated by their assignment to a fixed department for the first six months and, during this time, the opportunity to work closely with the job coaches towards independence. After a maximum of six months, internships in other senior citizen and care homes ensure that the participants are prepared for employment in the open labour market.
