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.
The Consortium varies depending on the type of project being applied ( Lot 1, Lot 2 or Lot 3). Depending on the type of project, partners from at least 4, 8 or 12 Program countries must be included. An organisation can only be involved in one Sector Skills Alliance application at the same time.
Application for the project that can last two, three or four years is submitted by an institution from a program country on behalf of the consortium, to the Executive Agency in Brussels (EACEA).
More details about Sector Skills Alliances can be found on the EACEA webpage.
