The purpose of this contract is to support Cedefop in carrying out in-depth reviews of the governance process of skills anticipation and matching activities within a selected group of EU+ countries (i.e. EU28, Norway and Iceland). The contractor will work together with Cedefop to develop and apply an iterative and evolutionary methodology, involving an analytical framework for reviewing skills governance infrastructure and processes within a country, raw and secondary data collection and analysis. The aim of the contract is to inform Cedefop’s know-how of country-specific challenges, bottlenecks and policy solutions that can strengthen the skills matching and anticipation processes within EU+ countries.

If requested by individual EU+ countries, the contractor will also assist Cedefop in undertaking supportive country reviews in collaboration with national authorities. The aim of such formal reviews in a country is the identification of specific challenges and provision of informed policy directions to national stakeholders that may enable their commitment to actions that can further strengthen their skills governance processes.
