Challenges for employment in transport
Facilitator: Wouter Van den Berghe, Belgian Road Safety Institute, SKILLFUL

The Transportation sector employs over 10 million persons in the EU today. At the same time, transport is a social sector that is rapidly developing, changing and being influenced to the maximum extent by the development of automation, electrification and greening of transport, among others, thus facing problems in staffing its several domains with appropriate and qualified personnel. This fact makes the need for changes in training and education content, curricula, tools and methodologies absolutely imperative, incorporating lifelong learning aspects for the professionals in all transports areas.

By attending this workshop you will get an overview of the Skillful project and, in particular, of its two major pillars, namely:
• the identification of the future job skills and competences in the transport sector;
• the identification of the most promising and innovative training schemes and methodologies for meeting the future requirements of the transport workforce.
In doing so, a special emphasis will be dedicated to intermodality. The workshop will be, to a large extend, interactive in nature in order to stimulate knowledge exchanges and transfers between the organizers and the audience and to benefit from input, comments and suggestions from the audience.

Intermodality, transport jobs requirements, skills and competences development, training gaps, new/emerging training methodologies.
Outcomes are available on Medium.
