Can governments proactively tackle the skills gap, increase the employability of young people and face the digital transformation? And which is the right administrative level to drive and to implement reforms?

In this practice-oriented seminar, you will evaluate different layers of the public sector in order to answer these questions. Benefit from the mix of lectures, case studies and tailor-made interactive exercises: apply theory and exchange your experience directly with international participants and experts.

A 2-day training course
To create effective skills policies and strategies, a multi-level governance approach is necessary. With the support of public authorities, multi-stakeholder partnerships with businesses, social partners, and academic institutions as well as the public sector, this can be achieved. The aim of this seminar is to help you improve the transition from training to employment:

  • Improve your skills on building strong partnerships by evaluating successful case studies;
  • Enhance your knowledge on future skills for job creation and employability to drive territorial competitiveness and employment policies;
  • Benefit from an international environment with known lecturers from agencies of the European Commission and the OECD: a great opportunity to network and exchange European experiences!

Who will benefit most?
This course has been designed for officials from education ministries, local, regional and national development officials, and professionals in the area of skills development and youth unemployment. Benefit from the insights of cross-European practices in relation to the implementation of VET systems, successful skills strategies and projects to support future skills.
