This seminar was the first opportunity to discuss the implementation and policy messages of the five ongoing Blueprint projects.
The Blueprint for sectoral cooperation on skills, introduced in the Skills Agenda 2016, is a strategic approach to addressing short and medium term skills needs.
The first Blueprint projects are soon reaching the one-year mark:
- Maritime technology
- Space - geo information
- Textile, clothing, leather and footwear
The seminar was a chance to share knowledge, to reflect on the challenges and breakthroughs so far, and to meet with stakeholders among and beyond the partnerships that will help to maximise the sustainability and impact of each Blueprint in years to come.
Follow the debate on social media with the hashtag #EUBlueprintSkills.
Alliances implementing the Blueprint bring together key labour market, education and training stakeholders and social partners in a given economic sector to deliver sector-specific solutions.
Funded by Erasmus+, each sector cooperates to identify skills needs and develops a comprehensive sectoral strategy as well as new or updated curricula where needed.
