ASSETs+ is working within the Pact for Skills to design and develop demand-led upskilling and reskilling education & training programmes on the cutting edge technologies of Robotics/Autonomous Systems, Artificial Intelligence, Cybersecurity and C4ISTAR.
The Pact for Skills 2022 annual survey results are in. The EU Pact for Skills has significantly helped companies and workers across Europe in advancing skills training. According to the survey:
- 2 million people have benefited from up-and re-skilling activities under the Pact
- 15,500 training programmes were either updated or developed
- Pact members have invested €160 million in skills initiatives
This is an important contribution to the European Year of Skills.
By bringing together industry, social partners, vocational and education providers, public authorities, employment services and others in different sectors, the Pact for Skills promotes a collective approach to tackling challenges and shortages in skills development.
Skills partnerships under the Pact have proven effective in addressing sectorial skills needs and have made a positive impact on enhancing the skills of workers. To date, 1,500 organisations have joined the Pact for Skills, with 18 large-scale skills partnerships established in strategic sectors.
This means at least one large-scale skills partnership has been set up for each industrial ecosystem of the EU Industrial Strategy. Together, all partnerships have pledged to provide training to over 10 million people in the coming years.
Other key findings
The survey reveals the positive and concrete impact large-scale skills partnerships in empowering workers with the necessary skills for success. For their sectors, Pact members have reported enhanced monitoring of the skills needed, a greater availability of high-quality training opportunities, and the implementation of more inclusive activities to boost skills.
Together, 21,500 stakeholders have joined forces through skills partnerships or networks (e.g., industrial clusters) to drive impactful skills development initiatives and reached 19 million people in Europe through promotion and dissemination activities.
