In each country, Korian has its own training institutes.
They have dual objectives: provide technical expertise about know-how, to meet the specific requirements of our sector and improve the behavioural skills on know-how, to ensure the best relational exchanges with all our residents and patients.
All employees are elligibles, no matter what their position or their mission.
For example, our German subsidiary has a dedicated training centre: the Akademie.
This academy has offered a qualification programme for apprenticeships since 2013, to support its junior employees. There are 800 apprentices in the German subsidiary.
At the same time, Germany has introduced a programme with the help of an external teaching institute. In 2014, this programme offered 40 training courses in three fields: care services, manager development and employee development. 15% of the employees took these courses.
Generally speaking, in 2014, 406,513 hours of professional training were provided in France, 23,187 in Italy and 30,855 in Belgium (information not available for Germany).
