The European Commission (‘the Commission’) in cooperation with the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (the ‘Agency’) is inviting the submission of proposals concerning the establishment or development of Sector Skills Alliances (SSA).
The action Sector Skills Alliances will be an important instrument to support the implementation of the New Skills Agenda for Europe . The action will contribute to the improvement of quality and relevance of Europe's Vocational Education and Training (VET) systems as outlined in the 2015 ET2020 Joint Report, and in the 2015 Riga conclusions agreeing on a new set of medium-term deliverables.
Projects can achieve these objectives by applying to one of the following "Lots":
- Sector Skills Alliances
- Sector Skills Alliances for implementing a new strategic approach (“Blueprint”) to sectoral cooperation on skills.
For all Lots, a particular focus must be given to digital skills as they are increasingly important in all job profiles across the entire labour market. In addition, the transition to a circular economy needs to be supported by changes to qualifications and national curricula to meet emerging professional needs for “green skills”.
Deadline: 2 May 2017
Budget: Total Budget estimated at EUR 28 million (at a maximum EU co-financing rate of 80%)
