Funds for: Close capability gaps with regard to one or more occupational profiles in a specific sector
Main beneficiaries: Universities

Priorities and funded actions:

Objectives
* Tackle skills gaps with regard to one or more occupational profiles in a specific sector;
* Identify existing or emerging sector-specific labour market needs;
* Enhance the responsiveness of initial and continuing vocational education and training (VET) systems, at all levels, to the labour market needs (supply side)

Priorities
* Develop strategic approaches to sectorial skills developments through partnerships for sustainable cooperation between key stakeholders in the sector and public authorities;
* Develop transnational level platforms and partnerships, based on innovative cooperation methods, as a first step towards the establishment of “Platforms of vocational excellence” acting as drivers of quality vocational skills in a context of European as well as national, regional/local sector strategies;
* Identify existing and emerging skills needs for professions in specific sectors, also feeding this intelligence into the European Skills Panorama;
* Strengthen the exchange of knowledge and practice between education and training institutions and the labour market, with particular reference to sectorial actors;
* Promote relevant sectorial qualifications and support agreement for their recognition;
* Build mutual trust, facilitating cross-border certification and therefore easing professional mobility in a sector, and increasing recognition of qualifications at European level within a sector;
* Adapt VET provision to skills needs, focusing both on job-specific skills as well as on key competences;

Among financed actions
* Lot 1 – Sector Skills Alliances for the development of sectoral approaches through transnational “Platforms of vocational excellence”:
– Development of pilot projects, based on innovative cooperation methods, as a first step towards the establishment of “Platforms of vocational excellence”;

* Lot 2 – Sector Skills Alliances for design and delivery of VET:
– Design and deliver common training content for vocational programmes for one or several related profession/s in a sector, as well as teaching and training methodologies, with a particular focus to be put on work-based learning, providing learners with the skills required by the labour market
* Lot 3 – Sector Skills Alliances for implementing a new strategic approach (Blueprint) to sectoral cooperation on skills:
