Appraising transversal skills in green jobs for employability of youth and workers in restructuring processes

The project intends to strengthen the capacity of VET and labor market organizations to reduce the gaps between available skills and labor demand and to deliver innovative tools to bridge such gaps focusing on two main tenets: sustainable development in the so-called green economies and the appraising of transversal skills as portable skills in times of high unemployment and restructuring.

The project intends, in line with the EU 2020 Strategy’s concept of “sustainable growth”, to approach “green” as a set of sustainable productive activities across sectors rather than a sector per se, & “green jobs” as a modality – based on a balanced mix of soft and hard skills – to deal with structural changes and sustainable restructuring of sectors as a consequence of globalization and needs for more environmentally –friendly approaches to productivity.

ACROSS promotes the concept of portable skills and it also includes people at risk of exclusion in the target of final beneficiaries. The project also responds to the 4th Priority area 2012-14: “Transversal key competences, entrepreneurship education, […] innovative learning environments”. It is developed to contribute to the Strategic Partnership’s objectives, by improving the employability in cross-sectorial green economies, building tools to assess transversal and portable skills, and including such tools in the provision of career guidance, counselling and support services along the whole cycle of human capital development.
