In November 2017, Live Skills project partners met with representatives of the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) of the EC, the main funder of the Live Skills project.
The purpose of this meeting was to share good practices and lessons learned from other VET (Vocational Education and Training) projects that have developed learning programmes in the audiovisual and live performance sectors in similar countries. One of the biggest challenges faced by these projects is achieving valid certification for these learning programmes, and ensuring that they can be adapted to other sectors in the creative industries. This will allow those working in the industry to develop new skills within their sectors. and open new pathways to continuing professional development.
The meeting was also an opportunity to share updates about the Live Skills project with the representatives from the European Commission, in particular the research carried out to identity the skills gaps and skills shortages in 4 target countries: Bulgaria, Greece, Romania & the UK.
