In brief

An analysis of current and future skills needs for the maritime shipping sector will be conducted in the work package 1. In addition, a methodology will be developed to support sustainable skills needs anticipation. A mechanism will be developed to update the state-of-play regarding skills needs identification on the short term, medium term and longer term, in order to enable adaptation of the educational programmes in an early stage. Throughout the WP1, it will be investigated along with the specific skills of maritime professionals also the need for horizontal skills to promote mobility especially from sea to land but also between specializations and business categories (e.g. from tanker to cruise or from insurer to broker). Gaps and mishmashes in the sector will be identified as well as the potential impact on current occupational profiles or new occupational profiles will be identified. In the process of analyzing the GAP, the need for upscaling of ICT competences at MET academies will be of particular focus as this will be important during implementation and future-proofing of skills.
