Cedefop co-organises a training and knowledge-sharing course on skills needs anticipation and matching with the International Training Centre of the International Labour Organisation (ITC-ILO), the Skills Development and Employability Unit of the ILO and the European Training Foundation (ETF).

The course will take place in Turin (Italy) between 20 and 24 October and the deadline for applications is 15 September.

Its main objective is to help participants understand the central importance of identifying current and future skills needs and labour market imbalances in a broader policy framework, and to acquire basic knowledge.

A wide range of individuals and groups can ultimately benefit from timely and accurate labour market information and pertinent training programmes and curricula, including job seekers from all ages and backgrounds, in particular youth and recent graduates; current and future students; planners in the skills development and technical VET sectors; curriculum developers; staff of vocational training institutions; public employment services; career guidance services and businesses.

The total cost of the course is EUR 2 100 per participant. ETF and Cedefop, as decentralised European Union agencies, are non-profit entities. The fees are charged solely by ITC-ILO to cover tuition fees and subsistence costs.

ITC-ILO will have a limited number of partial fellowships available for participants from developing and middle-income countries.
