Today, we celebrate the Europe Day. On this day in 1950, Robert Schuman delivered his famous Declaration – a historic moment in European history that set the foundation for the EU as we know it today in which he declared that “Europe will not be made all at once, or according to a single plan. It will be built through concrete achievements which first create a de facto solidarity.”
For the first time the discussion on skills needs to move from diagnostics to action, with the launch of the European Year of Skills is the moment. The European Year of Skills has officially started today to empower people to get the right skills for quality jobs. We need much more focus in our investment on professional education and upskilling in order to build the accessible, qualitative and affordable care workforce that will support the EU with coming demographic and societal challenges.
In this context, EFFE publish a statement to remind EU policy makers to take into consideration the homecare sector in the future decisions which insufficiently organised and their skills are unrecognised.
