The second capacity building session and third meeting of Creative Skills Europe, the European Skills Council for Employment and Training in the Audiovisual (AV) and Live Performance (LP) sectors took place in Madrid, Spain, on the 1st and 2nd of March 2016. More than 50 participants attended from 10 EU countries (Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, Sweden and the United Kingdom).
The capacity building session gave participants the opportunity to share experiences on the way skills needs and the evolutions of occupations are analysed in different EU countries, and on initiatives taken to address them. Three Southern countries were particularly in focus: Spain, Italy and Portugal.
The Council meeting, on the basis of the material presented in the third Creative Skills Europe’s report, was dedicated to deeper discussions on the main challenges identified for our sectors in the field of professional training and long-term skills strategies, namely: the use of labour market intelligence to better understand the sector skills trends, career management as a tool for skills acquisition at different moments of the professional path, the digital environment and its impact on sector processes and occupations, and the co-operation between professional stakeholders and the world of education.
