The EU TCLF Skills Council aims at improving the level of education, skills and employment in the Textile, Clothing Leather and Footwear (TCLF) industries.

This core objective is pursued through an effective networking of the Industry Skills Partnerships (i.e. national observatories) and of the EU Social partners of the TCLF sector, as well as through facilitating decision-making on education and training issues in the sector at European, national, regional and company levels.

Networking will enable better coordination at European level, exchange of best practices and the fostering of alliances within the TCLF sector and with strategic partners outside the industries.

Decision-making will be facilitated by thorough monitoring of labour market developments and training needs, the production of surveys, reports and analysis on education- and training-related themes, and the development and promotion of an effective innovation policy including technical research, technology transfers and vocational training to support the sustainability and flexibility of the industry.

The EU TCLF Skills Council is non-for-profit and permanent.
