KA2 – Sectoral skills alliances

Sector Skills Alliances shall aim at tackling skills gaps, enhancing the responsiveness of initial and continuing VET systems to sector-specific labour market needs and demand for new skills with regard to one or more occupational profiles.

Any participating organization established in a Programme country can be the applicant.This organisation applies on behalf of all participating organisations involved in the project.

Sector Skills Alliances involve minimum nine participating organisations from at least three Programme Countries, including two Member States. An organisation can only be involved in one Sector Skills Alliance application at the same time.

Furthermore, Sector Skills Alliances must include at least one organisation from each of the following three categories in each of the countries involved in the Alliance:

  • Public or private entities that provide VET.
  • Public or private entities that have sector specific expertise and are representative for/in a given sector (at European, national or regional level).
  • Public or private entities that have a regulatory function for education and training systems (at local, regional or national level).
