The automotive sector is increasingly challenged by technical and technological development, innovation and globalization. This highlighted the need to create new professional roles, which require new skills.
However, there is still an outdated idea that working in this industry is synonymous with low-skilled, low-paid jobs and little innovation, which keeps many young people away from training and careers in this area.
The Ambassadors4Skills&Jobs Program, launched by IDESCOM, was created with the aim of counteracting the lack of interest in these training courses, with the collaboration of the right people to create the future of a generation of highly qualified professionals for the automotive industry - Our Ambassadors.
The Ambassadors4Skills&Jobs Program initiated its activity in January 2021, with the launch of this website.
Through its network of Ambassadors and Ambassadors Advisers, which continues to grow, the Program developed a consistent and systematic activity in fulfilling the objectives it set. An increasingly active action in the dissemination, at national level, of the DRIVES Project and the resources created by it, through the realization of several Webinars, a Conference, a Workshop, a Roadshow making its way, and participation in various events, national and international.
In 2022, it is worth highlighting the event Automotive Project Market, an initiative of the Program that was made possible through the contribution and participation of Ambassador Advisers and respective entities, as well as Our Ambassadors, among other partners and guests.
The Program, as well as this platform, continues to be constantly updated and developed. Be part of this initiative.
Through the creation of a network of people – Ambassadors and Ambassadors Advisers – the Program disseminates knowledge about different training models, adapted to the emerging qualification needs of the automotive sector. Promoting collaborative processes between industry, training entities and institutional decision-makers, Ambassadors4Skills&Jobs seeks to enhance training and employment opportunities in this constantly growing industry.
