ELLAN

ELLAN is a LLP project funded by the European Commission. It is higher education institutions collaborative and networking project, includes 28 partners.

Europe faces severe population ageing in the near future. A new vision of ageing and promotion of positive possibilities in older age is needed. The challenge is how to transfer this vision into practice. Higher education institutions have a crucial role in meeting this challenge. The project reconstructs the diverse educational approach by developing a European Competencies Framework for working with the older people, sharing innovation in teaching and identifying factors that influence students in choosing to work with older people thus strengthening the quality of higher education for professions providing care for older people. The consortium will conduct analyses of competencies required of personnel working with older people from the viewpoint of literature, research, professionals, students and older people themselves. The results will be exploited in the development of higher educational curricula, as well as the promotion of a more positive vision of working with older people through national and European networks. The project is to share and distribute good practice and innovation related to Ageing. The desired outcome of the project is better quality of higher education related to the care of people in later life. The main aim of the project is to develop an agreed Core European Competencies Framework for working with older people. The main aim will be achieved by discovering older people's thoughts on the knowledge, attitudes and behaviours of health and social care professionals when working with older people; analysing research and literature on competences required in older people's care; exploring professionals' views of desired competences for all working with older people. In addition, the project aims to positively influence health and social care professionals' interest in working with older people, this will be achieved by exploring with students of social and health care, the factors that inhibit or facilitate working with older people identifying and sharing innovative learning approaches to working with older people – exemplars of good practices across Europe. The project consortium includes 28 partners from 26 countries. The duration of the ELLAN Project is 36 months (1.10.2013-30.9.2016

[03/09/17]   It is time to say that ELLAN project is now completed - the evaluation from EACEA approved the final report and evaluation was very good. We knew that the project was excellent, however, it was good to have an official recognition. Thank you for all the partners. It is good to remember that work continues: it is important that the results will be benefited in developing the education of social and health care professionals related to ageing issues.

The final report of ELLAN was completed and sent to EACEA today!
