Taking into account the proposal for a Council Recommendation on Vocational Education and Training for Sustainable Competitiveness, Social Equity and Resilience and the updated European Skills Agenda, the Osnabrück Declaration focuses on four key areas for the years 2021 to 2025:

  • Resilience and excellence through quality, inclusive and flexible VET
  • Creating a new culture for lifelong learning -relevance of continuing education and digitalisation
  • Sustainability – A green link to VET
  • European education and training area and international vocational education and training

With this project we will contribute to these objectives to a greater or lesser extent. Our two focuses within our project aremainly on 1 and 2. Through this project we want to upscale the digital skills of teachers and trainers in both the formal and non-formal sector so that they are able to develop qualittative interactive online teaching modules that contribute to aculture of lifelong learning. The developed modules focus on the theme of dementia in society. By doing so, we want to improve the quality of the existing care training programmes in the formal VET and the training programmes in the nonformal sector and adapt them to the increasing demand from society for quality education on this theme. This is necessary in order to detect the condition in people at an early stage and to provide them with high-quality care and support. On its website, the WHO identifies a lack of awareness and knowledge about dementia, which is widespread in many countries. The partners within this project consortium fully endorse this observation. The prevalence of dementia is escalating world-wide and knowledge deficits remain a barrier to community inclusiveness and quality care. The need for quality, comprehensive education has been identified as a key priority for global action plans on dementia. In the fight against Alzheimer’s disease, early recognition of this condition is extremely important. The online material we are developing is focused on the one hand on recognising the disorder and experiencing it, and on the other hand on the care that people with dementia need in their day-to-day lives.
