Skills for the future: Contributing to manage change

How developing and transition countries can respond to global trends shaping the labour market of tomorrow?

The European Training Foundation, the EU Agency in charge of developing training and education in the EU neighbouring countries, is the organiser of ‘Skills for the Future: Managing transition’.

The main goal of this initiative is to explore how governments, businesses, social partners, civil society, research institutions, communities and education and training providers can work together to manage change.

‘Skills for the Future: Managing Transition’ is an opportunity to exchange views from the EU and beyond, explore ways to respond to a changing labour market from a skills perspective and to identify solutions.

Some of the topics covered in the kick start event in Turin on 21-22 November 2018 focused around four main topics:

  1. Mastering global trends
  2. Tackling country-specific challenges
  3. Addressing the future of skills, education and training
  4. Supporting the transition toward the future
