Qualification in funeral services
90% of the funeral service sector in Europe consists of small and medium enterprises (SME’s). This is one reason why there are very little structured education and training opportunities in this area.
Staff development takes place mainly through “learning by doing”. Since this work area is still a big taboo subject, the very central aspect of psychological support and care of bereaved families is often underestimated. The ANUBIS project responds to this urgent need for training and also tries using distance learning to overcome geographical boundaries.
