Erasmus +: Live Skills (LIVSKI) (KA2 - Alliances - Partnerships between the world of work and education and training institutions)

 

The Creative and Cultural Sector plays a key role in promoting smart, sustainable and inclusive growth in Europe. It is, nevertheless, widely recognised that cultural professionals lack important skills and competences required to adapt to changing employment trends and make the most of new technologies and financing models in order to be able to drive the sector to innovation and growth.
Live Skills “LIVSKI” will tackle identified skills shortages and respond to the demand for new skills within two subsectors of the wider Creative and Cultural Sector: the Audio Visual and Live Performance sectors.
This will be achieved through the design and piloting of three new innovative VET curricula in Arts Management, Digital and New Technologies Skills and Cultural Entrepreneurship Skills for two professions in the AV & LP sectors, but, also adaptable to a broader range of professions and other subsectors of the wider Creative and Cultural Sector.

Led by British Council, this Alliance is composed of nine partners: VET providers, social partners, an accreditation body and a cultural organisation from Bulgaria, Greece, Romania and the UK.
The Alliance will work closely at all stages of the project with the industry and all relevant stakeholders to develop new curricula which include work based learning opportunities, are demand led and responsive to labour market needs. It will also work with qualification bodies as well as policy makers to ensure the three curricula are quality assured in line with EU transparency tools and transferable at European level.
Live Skills will help enhance employability and mobility for cultural professionals and students; boost the sector’s competitiveness and build a vibrant, robust and sustainable Creative and Cultural Sector for the future.
