ETSA answers European Commission Consultations on Digital Skills and Digital Education
On the 16th of September, ETSA Secretariat after liaising with its members, has submitted the following communication to the European Commission in relation to two open consultations on improving digital skills and digital education respectively. As many of you are already well aware, since ETSA began working on the EU funded project "Educate!," online training, upskilling and reskilling has been a topic ETSA has devoted significant time to in its lobbying strategy. Moreover, with 2022 being declared the "European Year of Youth" and 2023 being declared the "European Year for Skills," this issue is becoming only more salient.
As stated previously, ETSA has written the communication to the Commission following discussions with members in relation to the ongoing skills shortage. For the textile service industry, attracting skilled workers, particularly younger workers will become more important as the average age of the textile service workforce continues to increase. ETSA is proud to be part of the "Pact for Skills," and looks forward to working closer with both the Commission and its members in showcasing the textile service industry as an industry which is open to workers of a variety of skill levels, and one which is committed to digitalization and e-learning.
