Qualifications Framework for Long-term Care Workers in India, Japan, and the Philippines
Due to a steadily ageing global population, demand for care workers for older people is growing worldwide. In most societies and cultures, older people have traditionally been taken care of by family members, but shrinking family size has been making this difficult and businesses providing care for older people are emerging. Countries with aged populations are increasingly relying on foreign care workers.
This study focuses on a comparison of vocational qualifications frameworks in India, the Philippines, and Japan. It aims to contribute to the promotion of policy dialogue with a view to creating more skilled workers and to establish systems that can fairly recognise their competencies, so that their vocational skills can be much better utilised in any country.
