Inspirational practice on skills and qualifications

People are the driving force of success and benefits.

Each 'journey', selected from an ETF open call for success stories that brought over 450 responses, has been chartered in a short film by the ETF. Their success in developing skills and qualifications and benefits to people is due to the commitment and inspiration of those involved. These inspiring practices emanate from the ETF partner countries and were selected to showcase at the ETF’s Corporate Conference ‘Skills and qualifications: Benefits for people’ held on 6‒7 November 2019 in Turin. 

The films of the practices, briefly outlined below, can be viewed on the ETF Open Space and the ETF's YouTube channel.
