O1- According to OECD Report, increasingly, countries are recognising that good initial vocational education and training (VET) has a major contribution to make to economic competitiveness. In related with this, VET can play a central role in preparing young people for work, developing the skills of adults and responding to the labour-market needs of the economy. Besides the past 25 years has seen major economic transformations in Europe. Key competences and 21st century skills are to a great extent driven by a growing awareness of the impact of globalisation in terms of the overall job turnover and reconfiguration of labour markets. This output draws upon the comparative analysis and the conceptualisation of the gap in the existing labour market needs and future jobs’ requirements on the perspective of SMEs and VET institutions/providers. Also this output manifests different attitudes of the SMEs and VET institutions/providers at the EU level. End of this output “Hol Up Gap Report” will be produced, will be translated into all partner languages and will be published via Hol Up OER Platform in all partner languages.

02- This output includes three stages: The first stage (IO2/Task1) is to develop skills governance model for shaping the future of workforce: According to the European Commision Report (2015), skills governance is seen as a system aimed at balancing supply and demand of skills and to provide a “good skills” basis for further economic development. This model includes stakeholders from the public, private and third sector are involved in implementing and using the skills governance system. In this output, Skills Governance Model will be suggested by partners which covers planning and controlling – to different degrees - the national, regional and local offer of education and training and designing mechanisms for assuring the quality of training in partner countries. It will comprise a negotiation perspective, which represents to manage the needs of employers’, (future) employees’ and the VET education system goals, from a short-term, medium-term and long-term perspective via using multi level governance approach. The second stage (IO2/Task2) will be dedicated to SMEs in order to show how SMEs can deal with shaping the future of work in their organisations via upskilling competences of both existing employees and future employees. The third stage (IO2/Task3) will be dedicated to VET Institutions and VET Providers in order to show how they can build a dual side relationship and communication which not only increase the competences of the workers but also upskilling the employers and SMEs.
