Strengthening Key Competencies of Low-Skilled People in VET to Cover Future Replacement Positions (REPLAY-VET)

The project has now completed and has launched an Occupational Toolkit designed to provide VET institutions, employment services and policy makers with how-to-guides and best practice examples responding to needs and challenges regarding the employment and training opportunities of the low-skilled people. The kit gives access to inspiring solutions structured by sectors and key themes. It includes a considerable number of resources including How To Guides, labour market intelligence on regions and sectors and reproducible good practices. You can find the KIT here:

RELPAY-VET has produced a final report that highlights lessons and recommendations on improving the current and future labour market participation of low-skilled groups of workers across the European Union.
These include: reducing barriers to vocational training; improving the attractiveness of jobs, careers and labour conditions associated with the sectors in which low-skilled/low-qualified people work; and advancing professionalisation in these sectors.
Understanding changing labour market trends, including replacement demand and new demand for skills, is pivotal to the successful design of vocational education and work and employment policies for low-skilled people across Europe.

REPLAY-VET is an ERASMUS+ strategic partnership which aims to provide the disadvantaged and low-skilled people with targeted opportunities to acquire the VET skills to cover the job vacancies in Europe resulting from replacement demand.

REPLAY-VET will provide enhanced VET opportunities for people furthest from employment, including an innovative new strategy to identify those low-skilled positions in critical sectors that will have the greatest impact in the future and best practice strategies aimed at strengthening the key competencies of low-skilled people.
