CHT commits to TCLF Pact for Skills

Initiative for the competitiveness of the textile industry (clothing, leather, footwear)

 

On 16 December 2021 118 organisations signed the TCLF Pact for Skills, an initiative of the TCLF industries in the EU Initiative for the competitiveness of the textile industry (clothing, leather, footwear) promoted by the European Commission and coordinated by EURATEX. The CHT Group is proud to be part of this initiative.

The signatories acknowledge the skills challenge in the textiles ecosystem, and commit to invest in reskilling and upskilling workers, integrating green and digital skills and improving the attractiveness of the sector. Members of the Pact will benefit from networking, guidance and resources offered by the EC to implement the targets which are proposed in the Pact.

The Pact for Skills is part of the EU Industrial Strategy, addressing the competitiveness of 14 critical ecosystems, including textiles. The main aim of the Pact is maximising the impact of investments in improving existing skills (upskilling) and training in new skills (reskilling). To reach such an ambitious goal, the Pact gathers various actors in the TCLF sectors: industry, employers, social partners, national and regional authorities, education and training providers. These actors should work together and invest in large-scale skills partnerships, guarantee exchange of best practices and increase the attractiveness of the sector.
