CHARTER Alliance releases new report about European education & training schemes
The European Cultural Heritage Skills Alliance CHARTER, Erasmus+ funded project, has released a new report: “Cultural heritage education & training in Europe – pathways to qualifications” by Working Package 3 (Vocational Education and Training [VET] and beyond).
Education and training (E&T) are at the heart of all Blueprint alliances, initiatives set up by the European Commission in order to solve skills shortages in certain employment sectors. Skills needs can only be addressed effectively by first identifying existing skills gaps and, secondly, by filling these very gaps through E&T opportunities which are fit- to-purpose and support the overall sectoral strategy.
In this line, the new CHARTER report addresses the European E&T schemes, describing and analysing its many layers. At the same time, this extensive research is aimed towards developing the methodology for data collection on E&T institutions and programmes in CH. The indicators selected and explained in the report will be the ones that the future E&T database will collect. This instrument will be essential to CHARTER’s research in order to identify skills shortages and gaps of the cultural heritage sector.
