Pact for Skills

Large Scale Partnerships under the Pact for Skills

Welcome to the Pact for Skills' dedicated page for Large-Scale Partnerships (LSPs)

The priority of the Pact for Skills is to strengthen collective action on skills development by all stakeholders through skills partnerships.

At EU level, LSPs set up a shared engagement model for collective action where major players in industrial ecosystems and value or supply chains, including associations, relevant public authorities and SMEs, commit to cooperate and invest to provide upskilling and reskilling opportunities for people of working age in the whole industrial ecosystem.
