Short description:

The aim of Live Skills is to tackle skills gaps in the CCS and more specifically in AV and LP sectors by addressing market needs for digital, new technologies, arts management and entrepreneurship skills, and thus to enhance the relevance of the initial and continuous VET systems in four EU countries to sector-specific labour market demands. This will ultimately contribute to increasing labour mobility of practitioners from the sector and boost its competitiveness.

In support of above goal the project has the following specific objectives:

-Analyse and interpret skills gaps, shortages, mismatches and needs in the AV & LP sectors and identify common trends for the partner countries, through conducting a scoping analysis and state of play review which will inform and feed into our subsequent design and delivery of the curricula

-Respond to the recognised need of the CCS and in particular of the AV & LP to enhance entrepreneurial, management, digital and new technologies skills to boost cultural professionals capacity to drive innovation and growth

-Prepare industry-ready professionals and open new pathways to careers into the sector by integrating high quality work based learning and innovative methodologies

-Increase cultural professionals and students mobility by aligning to EU transparency tools and facilitating recognition of the learning outcomes

-Improve access to lifelong learning by mainstreaming equal opportunities, diversity and inclusion into design and delivery of training and making it openly accessible to wider and disadvantaged groups

-Modernise VET and exploit its potential to drive economic development and innovation by designing innovative vocational curricula for developing digital skills, arts management skills and entrepreneurship skills for EQF levels 3-5 for two specific professions within the AV & LP sectors identified after the scoping analysis phase of the project

-Strengthen the exchange of knowledge and practice between vocational education and training institutions and the labour market by establishing integral mechanisms for consultation and active involvement among all stakeholders at all stages of the project and integrating work-based learning in the joint curricula

-Facilitate increased recognition of qualifications at European level within AV & LP sectors by putting in place robust quality assurance mechanisms and clear methodological frameworks and guidelines for accreditation.
