Skills for Smart Textiles, Clothing Leather and Footwear (Skills4smart TCLF), is the name of a European partnership between 21 organisations from 9 European countries on skills policy in our sectors. The project is one of the sectoral Blueprint projects within the framework of the European Skills Agenda (https://ec.europa.eu/social/main.jsp?catId=1223).
The Blueprint project for the textile and clothing sector revolves around the question of how Europe can best support an effective skills policy in our industry. The project consists of several parts. After a study and a survey of more than 200 companies in the sector in 2018, work was done on a skills strategy, the promotion of the sector, and especially on a supply of training materials for eight critical competency domains.
As a training centre for our sector, you have expressed your interest in the project in the past. Today, we are presenting the training materials to you during a webinar.
In the coming months, the materials will be tested with users in the form of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) via the online training platform iversity.org. On 10 September, we will be happy to explain how you too can make use of these materials and possibly incorporate them into your training activities. All this is a cooperation logic that we would like to discuss with you.
