Circular skills for the textile and furniture industries


The Circular Skills program presents a new report. In June and July, Learning for Tomorrow in collaboration with. NADO and SME organized a market consultation in the manufacturing industry. The aim was to question circular leaders in the textile and furniture sectors about what skills should be taught in vocational education to accelerate the transition to a circular economy. This was based on the circular working principles already defined in the Circular Skills program. Among other things, the frontrunners spoke about the importance of technical (craft) skills, adaptive and entrepreneurial competencies and soft skills to better deal with the interconnectedness of the production chain.

The circular manufacturing market consultation was made possible by the Goldschmeding Foundation for Man, Work and Economy and the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management.
