14 May Collaborative, dynamic and well targeted is our CosTUmE´s action!
CITEVE participates in the project, as coordinator and active partner.
The CosTUmE project partnership has implemented a collaborative dynamic, where VET providers, companies and policy makers have shared experiences and knowledge.
CosTUmE consortium has been working towards its primary purpose of creating a new clothing technician profile and qualification transversal to Portugal, Spain and Romania.
CITEVE participates in the project, as coordinator and active partner. In Portugal, CITEVE plays an important role in the definition and implementation of public policy, since it is part of the fashion sector council, a technical advisory working group established by the National Agency for Qualification and Vocational Education I.P. (ANQEP), where it participates in the creation and validation of professional profiles, courses and training units for the National Qualification Catalogue. In this context, since the beginning of CosTUmE, ANQEP has been aware of the activities and results of the project, having actively participated in the Network sessions, essential in the development of the Clothing Profile.
As VET provider and intermediary between companies and the training opportunities specific oriented for this sector, CITEVE playing the role of “facilitator” between the needed skills in industry and the training opportunities offered.
The textile and clothing sector has a significant weight in employment and in the economy of Portugal, generating new jobs and professional progression, and the Clothing profile is essential for this development.
