The increase in adult participation in CVET is an issue of maximum relevance to the goals set by the Europe 2020 Strategy. However, difficulties in mobilizing the social partners and businesses for CVET and training in the workplace are a common problem to several European countries.
The aim of the International Benchmarking on CVET – 4 European Regions is to deeply focus on the issues of CVET (Continuing Vocational Education and Training) that have been highlighted both in the Bruges Communiqué and in the latest Eurydice's report on adult education. Particularly, the Project will propose policy solutions for the promotion of adults’ participation in continuing education, especially those with less access to training offers. This will be achieved through cooperation and partnership between public authorities and CVET stakeholders from different countries and regions of the EU. The Blue Economy – for its special importance in the partnering countries – has been chosen as the scope of application of the Project, with a special focus on the shipbuilding sector.

In order to deliver sector-specific skills solutions, the New Skills Agenda for Europe has launched the Blueprint for Sectoral Cooperation on Skills. The Blueprint is a new framework for strategic cooperation between key stakeholders (e.g. businesses, trade unions, research, education and training institutions, public authorities) in a given economic sector. It will stimulate investment and encourage the strategic use of EU and national funding opportunities. The aim is to develop concrete actions to satisfy short and medium term skills needs to support the overall sectoral strategy.
The Blueprint can only bring results if it is driven and owned by sector stakeholders. In this respect, the full involvement of social partners is very important. The Blueprint has been and will continue to be discussed in an open exchange with interested parties, including in the context of sectoral social dialogue committees.
