Pact for Skills commitments define how organisations plan to take action for the upskilling and reskilling of people of working age. Commitments are made by organisations and outline the concrete actions they will implement to support the key principles of the Pact for Skills charter:
- Promoting a culture of lifelong learning for all;
- Building strong skills partnerships;
- Monitoring skill supply/demand and anticipating skill needs;
- Working against discrimination and for gender equality and equal opportunities
When you sign up for the Pact for Skills, you can either define concrete commitments, or endorse the commitments of your skills partnership. Remember you can revise and update the commitment you make when registering.
To help you make a new commitment you can find standardised list below of actions and corresponding KPIs as a reference. The list is based on the four key principles of the Pact for Skills Charter, and can help you define a commitment, based on example categories of commitments, types of actions, target groups and KPIs. If you need additional support, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Large-Scale Skills Partnerships (LSPs) are 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. For more information, see this website page, or guidance handbook.
Regional Skills Partnerships (RSPs) are multi-stakeholder partnerships seeking to advance the Pact for Skills’ objectives at the regional level. RSPs can cover either a region within a single Member State (e.g., Lombardy in Italy), or ‘macro regions’ spanning across Member States that have a shared geographical or economic proximity or relationship. Under the Pact for Skills, a RSP has to be formalised with a declaration of commitment. Developing regional skills partnerships under the Pact is an opportunity to get support for these activities and highlight their impact through a European wide initiative. For more information, see this website page, or guidance handbook.
