The overall aims of LEARN TO CREATE (L2C in short) is to design, test and validate a new work-based learning (WBL) programme in Europe’s Creative and Cultural Industries (CCIs). It recognizes that the modern, creative work-place is a powerful learning environment, with the potential to make vast contributions to employment, productivity and to increase economic competitiveness. The European Commission recognizes that the cultural and creative industry sector (CCI) makes a social and economic contribution to the EU and highlights it as one of Europe’s emerging industries, especially for its dynamic and transformative role in the digital era.
L2C aims to develop a comprehensive and tailored approach to promoting WBL in the CCI sector, working directly with and providing specific support to companies and entrepreneurs from this sector, and vocational education and training (VET) teachers and trainers. L2C addresses the EU challenges of reducing youth unemployment and the adaptation of the current workforce to sustain and grow employment, thus ensuring that the developed skills of the workforce meet the needs of the future workplace.
The project Learn2Create is funded by Erasmus + KA2 Strategic Partnership with the participation of organizations from Poland (Fundacja Arteria – Coordinator), Italy (Materahub), Spain (Innogate To Europe), Greece (Dimitra), UK (Rinova).
