No pupils for geriatric care school in Graz

schoolThe need for qualified employees of geriatric care is big in Austria. In spite of that a geriatric care school in Graz has to face empty class rooms.

Reason is not a lack of interest, but the missing assistance of the employment agency.

“The pupils need financial assistance”, says the female schoolmaster Heidemarie Schrötter. “No one of those young people can afford 1.000 EUR for the training costs.”

The employment agency is not very interested to spend money for it. “First the pupil needs to have a job. Then we can talk about financial help”, reads the delcaration of the employment agency.

The training of the school lasts for two years and contains the focal point geriatric care.
