About Us

In the context of the European Commission Pact for Skills, the TCLF Skills Alliance is the EU Large-Scale Skills partnership (LSPs) dedicated to Textile Clothing Leather and Footwear (TCLF). The initiative supports public and private organisations with upskilling and reskilling in the TCLF ecosystem.

The Pact for Skills is part of the EU Industrial Strategy, which aims to mitigate the lack of skilled workforce in the TCLF sectors as well as master the green and digital transition by improving existing skills (upskilling) and training in new skills (reskilling). To reach this ambitious goal, the Pact brings together various actors of the TCLF sectors: companies, social partners, national and regional authorities, vocational education and training providers and universities. Furthermore, the TCLF Skills Alliance guarantees the exchange of best practices to increase the sector's attractiveness for young people searching for a career in a more digital and green economy. The current signatories have privileged access to actions and activities of the TCLF Skills Alliance.


Steering Committee

The TCLF Skills Alliance Steering Committee is the central point of contact for stakeholders at regional, local and European levels. It oversees and facilitates the implementation of the activities under the Pact for Skills, and makes recommendations for new initiatives.

Signatories of the Pact

More than 150 European companies, associations, and regional authorities have signed the TCLF Pact for Skills Charter in December 2021. They are the backbone and the heart of the alliance.
