The Automotive Skills Alliance (ASA) brings together key stakeholders to ensure continuous, pragmatic and sustainable cooperation on the skills agenda in the mobility ecosystem, collaborating at European, as well as on national and regional levels. CLEPA is among the partnership founders and is actively involved as a leader of the Working Group 2 “Communication & Dissemination”.
The ASA was created in November 2020 under the Pact for Skills, the first flagship action of the European Skills Agenda, firmly anchored in the European Pillar of Social Rights principles. The pact aims to mobilise and incentivise private and public stakeholders to invest and take concrete action for the upskilling and reskilling of working-age people.
The European automotive industry is undergoing an unprecedented green & digital transformation. The mobility ecosystem is facing additional pressures caused by continued supply chain disruptions post COVID-19, and increases in the price of raw materials, energy and semiconductors. The transition impacts the 15 million people employed in the automotive value-chain, putting jobs at risk and challenges in acquiring new skilled talent for emerging jobs.
The ASA currently gathers more than 90 partners, including large automotive companies and SMEs, national and local authorities, social partners, sectoral organisations, education bodies and training providers. The ASA became a legal entity (non-profit organisation) in January 2022 and is based in Brussels, in the heart of the European Union.
