The aim of the project is to implement the Blueprint objectives for the automotive sector, namely the delivery of human capital solutions to supply chain SMEs through the establishment of an Automotive Sector Skills Alliance, covering all levels of the value chain (vehicle production, automotive suppliers and automotive sales and aftermarket services).
The key objectives are defined as following:
1. Assessing and inclusion of existing and proven Skills Frameworks in European countries, modernize them to cope with future automotive trends (using expert analysis companies), and deployment into other countries.
2. Enabling mutual recognition of awards and certificates between formal and informal automotive education, VET and universities, and across Europe in order to enhance the use and success of government funded mobility programmes such as Erasmus+.
3. Implementation of a common European automotive skills umbrella and integration of existing skills frameworks (Sector skills council, ECQA, AQUA, SkillMan, Skills Passport, etc.) including pilot trainings.
4. Deployment of the Apprenticeship Marketplace by enhancing its effectiveness for automotive job seekers. Creation of IT infrastructure to facilitate dissemination of common job requirements, which will be available for job seekers, training providers (namely universities), VET providers and other stakeholders. Promotion of the portal as a labour market place on local, national and European levels.
