For the attractiveness of the caregiver profession, school recruitment will be on file

It is a measure that was included in the recommendations of former Minister Myriam El Khomri. Caregiver schools will recruit their students from September on file and no longer on competition, announced Thursday the Minister of Health Agnès Buzyn, who thus wishes to enhance the attractiveness of this profession, in particular in the help for the elderly.

"I would like us to do away with the entrance exam" to the training institutes for nursing assistants (Ifas) "from September 2020," said the minister during a visit to Ifas in Nanterre, near Paris.

This measure was one of the recommendations of former Minister Myriam El Khomri in her report on the upgrading of the professions of the elderly, which was submitted to the government in October. "We want to send a signal by opening up access to initial training as widely as possible," said the current Minister of Health.

The number of applicants in free fall

The current recruitment competition has seen the number of candidates drop by 25% between 2012 and 2017, even though "the needs are immense, and they will continue to grow," according to the minister.

This competition "does not make it possible to satisfactorily develop certain absolutely essential human skills", and will therefore be replaced by a selection on file, supplemented by an interview. This system will "diversify paths and promote skills and projects rather than knowledge," she said.

A transitional mechanism will be set up "so as not to penalize those who are currently preparing for the competition," the ministry said in a statement.

Initial training will go from 10 to 12 months, "around new lessons such as spotting frailty" or "preventing loss of autonomy", according to the same source.
