The infographic is based on 160 surveys compiled among the main companies working in the ports of Barcelona (ES), Lisbon (PT), Ventspils (LV) and Constanta (RO). It presents the main characteristics, employment needs and trends in VET recruitment of the main port companies surveyed by all project partners along 2020.
The first section of the infographic presents the main characteristics of the companies of the port companies, like their staff dimension, human resources department and main sector of activity.
The second section highlights the levels of education of port companies’ employees.
The third one analyses the top VET fields of specialisation with more interest of recruitment.
The fourth section studies the professional profiles and the skills mismatch, identifying the main difficulties companies face to find adequate profiles and skills.
The infographic also shows which professional profiles are most difficult to find per port and the knowledge companies have about the VET port-related offer in their cities.
This is the first product of the Port VET Hub project. The next phase of the project will focus on analysing the country-specific future professional profiles required in each port in order to identify the emerging occupations within the sector and the new skills demanded by port companies in each country.
The Port VET Hub is a transnational Strategic Partnership developed under the Key Action 2 of the Erasmus + Programme to exchange good practices and adapt Vocational Education Training (VET) to the future trends of the port sector in Europe among four port cities in the Mediterranean, Atlantic, Baltic and Black Seas.
