What is the objective of the Automotive Skills Council?

  • It will help to better anticipate the current and future skills needs throughout the automotive sector in Europe

  • It will contribute to tackling skills shortage and skills mismatch by focusing on job creation, retraining and job transformation in the automotive sector

  • The concept of an automotive sector council for employment and skills will be tested during 18 months and hopefully even longer: this means finding effective ways of cooperation and establishing sustainable networking processes between the different stakeholders

How will the Automotive Skills Council achieve this objective?

  • It provides a platform to discuss the evolution of skills and jobs, to gather automotive skills intelligence

  • It will bring sector specific skills issues to the attention of policy makers and other stakeholders by highlighting skills mismatches and bottlenecks
