Dutch to train carers

A Dutch educational institute based in Poprad will train 300 Slovak carers who will then sign a two-year work placement in Dutch families to take care of post-op patients.

The three month course will improve the applicants' language skills and teach them basic social-health standards in the Netherlands.

"We're in the process of choosing people for the project. Basic conditions for acceptance are elementary language skills, age under 45 years, and secondary health or social care education," said Juraj Puhala, head of the Dutch institute.
