The European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop) will organise on 26 September its 3rd virtual get-together. The event will welcome sectoral players, VET providers, guidance practitioners and other actors to exchange experience with sectoral skills intelligence stemming from skills anticipation methods. It will also allow them to identify opportunities and challenges for using it “in the front line”. Finally, the role of sectoral skills intelligence in supporting the design and improvements of sectoral skill strategies will also be discussed.
The event, titled “Sectorial skills intelligence and strategies as drivers of the just transition: Supporting frontline actors”, shall be composed of two blocks: the trends in Member States on skills anticipation and the identified opportunities and challenges in EU-Funded Blueprint projects on sectoral skills strategies. Afterwards, participants will have the chance to ask the speakers and a panel discussion will be held to close the event.
Relevant and targeted vocational education and training (VET) programmes need to reflect insights of skills anticipation methods (such as skills forecasts, employee and employer surveys, big data analysis). Particularly, in times of increased volatility and economic pressures, economic sectors are the hubs of change and innovation that can enable a just twin transition. A mix of suitable skills anticipation tools and methods, availability of data, capacity to handle and “translate” the data into actionable and policy steps are crucial. Sectoral skill strategies, built on high quality sectoral skills intelligence, place relevant stakeholders at the driver’s seat and call for a holistic skills governance approach, founded on comprehensive skills ecosystems.
This event is promoted by Cedefop, one of the EU’s decentralised agencies. Founded in 1975 and based in Greece since 1995. Cedefop supports the promotion, development and implementation of the Union policy in the field of vocational education and training (VET) as well as skills and qualifications policies by working together with the Commission, Member States and social partners. To this end, it enhances and disseminates knowledge, provides evidence and services for policy-making, including research-based conclusions, and facilitates knowledge sharing among and between EU and national actors.
DESTINE Project and its partners agree with the spot that Cedefop gives to VET, to its promotion, development and implementation. DESTINE Project core actions are focused for those students who need a learning environment adapted to their needs, as the project aims to guarantee support for diversity, inclusion and tolerance.
The event will be open for all audience, so, in case you want to join, you can register through this link.
