UPSKILL approach

The aim of the project is to enhance the capability of European VET systems to respond to the plastics sector-specific labor market needs by designing, piloting and implementing an innovative vocational training programme for plastics machine operators with specific emphasis on digital skills to work with robotics and other smart manufacturing technologies, as well as green skills and entrepreneurial competencies.

The project will:
- enhance the quality of vocational training;
- improve the competence of teachers and plastic machine operators;
- make VET curriculum more relevant to the labour market;
- provide students and teachers with the opportunity to use digital materials.
