The Alliance will do this by:

  • Collecting relevant labour market information on a regular basis
  • Identifying sector-specific labour market and skills needs
  • Tracking trends to support new occupation roles
  • Developing occupational standards and systems to develop the skills needed by its workers
  • Creating forums for stakeholders and especially employers to debate and discuss skills and employment issues
  • Supporting, representing and inspiring the Sector to promote its political and societal importance

The Alliance commits to inform its sector employers, employees, and training providers to help strengthen the exchange of knowledge and practice between education and training institutions and the labour market.
