The European Training Foundation (ETF) has organised a workshop on 4-5 December in Brussels on “Public Private Partnerships: success factor for skills development” together with IIAS (International Institute of Administrative Sciences), which has seen the participation from policy makers and practitioners from the European Union and neighbouring countries.
“Public private partnership is at the forefront of the European Commission’s employment policy implementation” said Mr Sekmokas from the European Commission’s Directorate for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion.
The event was organised around several topics, including the contribution of public private partnerships to innovation in skills development and their benefit compared to other forms of cooperation in skills development.
Benefits of successful public private partnerships for skills development include increased accessibility to training, demand-driven vocational education and training provision, employment and economic growth.
An ETF study, “Public Private Partnerships: success factor for skills development” , which has been presented at the Brussels workshops, presents 23 successful case studies from 14 countries providing with critical input for discussions.
