Continuing vocational training is one of the components of Caritas Luxembourg's work to promote employment.

A large part of its offering concerns non-formal education and targets staff working in out-of-school care facilities (crèches, childcare centres etc.). The introduction of the "Concept d’Action Général" (General Action Concept) means these centres have to continuously improve the quality of their work and to implement new concepts such as multilingualism and inclusion. To be able to do this, continuing training for child-care and early learning professionals is essential! Moreover, it is the supervisory staff itself who is requesting the opportunity to acquire more skills in these new areas.  In order to do this, Caritas Luxembourg can rely on the field experience of Caritas Jeunes et Familles.

The content of the training courses is in line with the official criteria of the National Youth Service, whose mandate is to implement and monitor the quality standards provided for by law. The training courses are offered in different languages (see headings)

Training and educational tools are also designed and offered on request for other sectors such as refugee reception or homelessness.
