The Blueprint for Sectoral Cooperation on Skills is a new framework for strategic cooperation to address short and medium-term skills needs in a given economic sector. This publication focuses specifically on the textile, clothing, leather & footwear sector and shows how stakeholders (businesses, trade unions, public authorities, research, education and training institutions etc.) can apply the framework to address challenges, illustrating the steps towards delivering sector-specific skills solutions through sectoral partnerships.

All relevant EU and national qualitative evidence and quantitative data produced under the Blueprint will contribute to the Skills Panorama and the new Europass Framework. In this publication we outline the steps towards cooperation on skills across the six pilot sectors of this initiative. We then review specifically the needs and benefits of the Blueprint in the context of the maritime technology sector.
