Blueprint for Sectoral Cooperation on Skills In a Nutshell
Technological progress and globalisation offer tremendous opportunities for innovation, growth and jobs. These developments require skilled and adaptable people who are able to drive and support change.In order to address skills gaps that may prevent promising industries from growing, the Blueprint for Sectoral Cooperation on Skills was launched as part of the New Skills Agenda.
The Blueprint provides a framework for strategic cooperation between key stakeholders such as businesses, trade unions, research and training institutions and public authorities in a given economic sector. These industry-led partnerships develop sectoral skills strategies and concrete actions, such as new or updated vocational education and training. These will help foster new opportunities for investment, among others.
This leaflet offers a concise overview of the Blueprint ‘in a nutshell’, outlining its purpose and methodology, as well as a list of the sectors in which it is already making its mark. It also provides useful links and details on how organisations can get involved.
