The E.D.E. undertakes to develop and optimise the vocational training and continuing education possibilities for staff charged with care and supervision. In particular the E.D.E. undertakes to further harmonise national qualification standards.
We wish to help the profession of care home / care service director benefit from higher qualification standards, and to raise the esteem for these qualifications across Europe. The long-term aim is to complete the education of home managers and directors at the university level.
The E.D.E. therefore increasingly accredits academic courses in the areas of care, health and social management.
With its European guidelines for the vocational training and continuing education of care home directors, the E.D.E. highlights the fact that sector-specific training is crucial for those who care for the elderly and the very aged.
