Supporting the rapid growth in the aging population is one of EU’s greatest challenges, placing the care sector high on policy agendas. Demographic change, technological advancements and poor working conditions exercise pressure on care workers’ employment and skills.

This policy brief discusses developments in the employment and skills of care sector workers, and the role that vocational education and training (VET) can play in support, building on Cedefop’s skill forecast and online job advertisement analysis.
