For Students

Sector Skills Alliances shall aim at tackling skills gaps, enhancing the responsiveness of initial and continuing VET systems to sector-specific labour market needs and demand for new skills with regard to one or more occupational profiles.

These objectives will be achieved by:

  • Modernising VET and exploiting its potential to drive economic development and innovation, notably at local and regional levels, increasing the competitiveness of the sectors concerned.
  • Strengthening the exchange of knowledge and practice between vocational education and training institutions and the labour market integrating work-based learning.
  • Facilitating labour mobility, mutual trust and increased recognition of qualifications at European level within the sectors concerned.
