Sector Skills Alliances

European Programme Erasmus+

On 26 January 2017, the Call for Proposals EACEA/04/2017 “Sector Skills Alliances” has been published by the European Commission in the framework of the Erasmus+ Programme. 

The aim of the current EACEA/04/2017 “Sector Skills Alliances” call for proposals, published by the European Commission in the framework of the Erasmus+ Programme, is to tackle skills gaps with regard to one or more occupational profiles in a specific sector by identifying existing or emerging sector specific labour market needs (demand side) and by enhancing the responsiveness of initial and continuing VET systems to the labour market needs (supply side).

 

The general objective of the current EACEA/04/2017 “Sector Skills Alliances” call for proposals, published by the European Commission in the framework of the Erasmus+ Programme, is to support the design and the delivery of transnational vocational training content, as well as teaching and training methodologies for European professional core profiles. 

 

Transnational projects to be submitted within the current EACEA/04/2017 “Sector Skills Alliances” call for proposals, published by the European Commission in the framework of the Erasmus+ Programme, should work to achieve the following objectives:

- identification of existing and emerging skills needs for professions in specific sectors, strengthening the exchange of knowledge and practice between education and training institutions and the labour market;

- modernizing VET by adapting provision to skills needs;

- integrating work based learning in VET provision, and exploiting its potential to drive economic development and innovation, increasing the competitiveness of the sectors concerned;

- building mutual trust, facilitating cross-border certification and therefore easing professional mobility in a sector, and increasing recognition of qualifications at European level within a sector;

- supporting a strategic approach to sectoral cooperation on skills.

 

Eligible activities supported by the current EACEA/04/2017 “Sector Skills Alliances” call for proposals, published by the European Commission in the framework of the Erasmus+ Programme, are:

 

Lot 1 - Sector Skills Alliances for skills needs identification will work to identify and provide detailed evidence on skills needs, and gaps in a given specific economic sector. This would make it possible to address such gaps through training provision, whether it be VET-based or any other education and training sector.

 

Lot 2 - Sector Skills Alliances for design and delivery of VET will work to respond to identified skills gaps and needs in a specific economic sector, by developing innovative curricula, as well as teaching and training delivery methodologies. The curricula and training methodologies should include a strong work-based learning component, and support trans-national learner mobility.

 

Lot 3 - Sector Skills Alliances for implementing a new strategic approach (“Blueprint”) to sectoral cooperation on skills will work to improve skills intelligence and to provide a clear strategy and instruments to address skills shortages in specific economic sectors. It will be piloted in six sectors: automotive, defense, maritime technology, space geo information, textile-clothing-leather-footwear and tourism.
