Competitive companies of the future will continue to rely on a well-trained workforce. Skills management tailored to the needs of individual companies and their workers provides the possibility to give staff the best possible training for constantly changing tasks and to accommodate their ideas and individual requirements. In addition to continuous professional development throughout a person’s working career, regular updating of content and formats in initial vocational education and training also plays an important role.
In this session theme, participants will discuss what day-to-day work and training opportunities should look like so that workers can develop and expand their skills and competences throughout their careers. A further goal will be to determine how to secure and pass on knowledge gained through experience and hold on to valuable knowledge at the company of experienced staff by identifying alternative fields of activity (‘second careers’).
Another focus will be on utilising state-of-the-art learning formats and virtual and augmented reality in initial training and continuous professional development.
