- Promotes initiatives to support cooperation and knowledge-sharing between VET institutions and providers on “green skills”, to make training offers adaptable and flexible according to people’s needs and economic transformations.
- Promotes the innovation of VET systems, considering VET as a responsive supply chain for strengthening employability of people, offering upskilling and reskilling opportunities, strongly connected to the emerging skills needs and the evolution of the international labour market.
- Supports the internationalization of VET providers.
- Foresees the creation of a European Academy on circular economy, by adopting a learner-centred approach to training to maximize the achievement of learning outcomes, and by fostering the adoption of systematic approaches to skills foresight/anticipation, to update VET programmes, curricula and guidelines in a timely and effective manner, fighting the skills mismatching phenomenon.
