In 2022 social partners of the EU Audiovisual (AV) and Live Performance (LP) Social Dialogue Committees have been working together towards the adoption of a Framework of Actions (FoA) on Skills. The FoA builds on the labour intelligence and expertise acquired by the social partners since 2014 through their cooperation in the Creative Skills Europe project, the European Platform for Employment and Training in the AV and LP sectors.
The FoA sets out shared values, common objectives, and joint commitments of the social partners to support skills development in the EU. A specific focus is on the digital era. The document also encourages good practices and points towards different fields of action at national and European levels to further promote lifelong learning.
The general objective of the project is to improve the relevance, quality, and accessibility of lifelong learning for sector professionals. The main tool to achieve this objective is the implementation of the FoA.
The project has three activity strands that will run in parallel and reinforce each other:
The FoA will be translated into nine languages. In addition, campaign material (a publication + social media visuals) in four languages (English, Spanish, French and German) will also be prepared to address a key challenge in the audiovisual and live performance sectors: the lack of skilled professionals in a series of occupations, in particular technical ones. This campaign, addressing a very concrete and urgent need both in the audiovisual and live performance sectors, will engage stakeholders on a skills topic directly grounded in their reality, with the aim of then interesting them in a more general skills discussion.
A new section on the Creative Skills Europe website will be created to present the FoA on skills in its different linguistic versions, as well as all other communication material produced, incl. the campaign material. The good practices, skills needs’ assessments and all other relevant information collected through the network of national sector skills councils will also be published on the website, in the ‘resources’ section, as well as on the social media channels of Creative Skills Europe. A newsletter on the project activities will be regularly published.
The project is supported by the European Union
