Meeting the ageing population challenge – High-quality training for 12,000 caregivers
By 2060, 155 million Europeans, or 30 percent of the total European population, will be 65 years or older. In this ageing demography, caregivers have crucial role but are often undereducated and have a low influence on their work situation. Qualitative training for caregivers has a huge potential as it raises the skills levels of a large and sometimes overlooked workforce and can have a significant impact on caregiving for an ageing population. CARE Campus is a unique, EIT Health-supported, training programme providing high-quality distance education for both professional and family caregivers. When wrapping up the four-year programme, almost 12.000 caregivers have taken the online courses.
