EAC Call for proposals - Pilot project for the development of sector skills alliances
May 01, 2012
Directorate General Education and Culture has published a Call for proposals EAC / S01 / 2012 - Pilot project for the development of sector skills alliances.
The call for proposals is based on the decision establishing the Lifelong Learning Programme and on the Lifelong Learning Programme work programme 2012, financing decision C(2012) 1823 of 23 March 2012. It tests a new type of strategic partnership proposed in Erasmus for All.
The Commission's proposal for a future programme "Erasmus for All" foresees a new category of transnational partnership called Sector Skills Alliances (SSA) to promote cooperation between three categories of partners: the world of education and training (VET providers); sector-specific expertise (including social partners, sectoral federations, Chambers etc.); and bodies involved in education and training systems (public or private bodies or authorities).
Drawing on evidence of skills needs and trends, SSA will work to design and deliver joint curricula and methods which provide learners with the skills required by the labour market. The overall goal is systemic impact on training in the economic sectors concerned in order to increase their competitiveness.
The current call for proposals provides and direct support for testing Sector Skills Alliances to draw lessons for future implementation.
The deadline for the submission of applications is 16 August 2012.
