The European Association of Service providers for Persons with Disabilities (EASPD), partner of AER in the AMiD project, is looking for a public authority to join as a partner in their project within the Erasmus+ Sector Skills Alliance program.
Who is EASPD?
EASPD is an organisation that dedicates itself to persons with disabilities. Their objective is to deliver high-quality support services for those in need.
What about the project?
This project seeks to develop an alliance to provide training on the new technological competences and improve digital skills of the Health and Social Sector professionals who are supporting persons with disabilities. The training will help to identify the skills shortages and link these to ECVET points (European Credit System for Vocational Education & Training) and EQF levels (European Qualifications Framework).
The outcomes of this training will:
- Afford caregivers (occupational therapists, psychologists, social workers, special education teachers, nurses, gerontologists, rehabilitation experts) the ability to learn how to use new technological devices such as sensors, assistive devices, robots, virtual and augmented reality headsets, brain computer interfaces,
- Improve the learner’s mobility, and
- Aid their own personal and professional development.
The maximum budget for this project is € 1,000,000 and the duration is 3 years.
Who are they looking for?
EASPD is looking for a public authority who is engaging in certification and accreditation but also interested in this area. Participation from public authorities in Italy, Greece, Cyprus, Germany, Ireland or Lithuania are especially encouraged!
If you are a public authority interested in being part of this worthwhile project, please contact the AER Secretariat before 18 January 2019.
