About the course

It is estimated that there are about 25,000 people employed in the fisheries sector in Croatia. Despite that, the data show a shortage of skilled workforce and lack of knowledge among employees in the sector. Therefore, one of the main goals of the project is building skills and competences in the fisheries sector which will be achieved through an innovative e-learning model. The project will develop new online learning material accessible to the University, VET providers and the companies in the sector. The aim of the course is a possibility for professional retraining and improvement of competences in different sectors (including currently unemployed persons) in order to find a job, or to diversify and develop skills relevant for the blue sector. It will help them to achieve a progress in their careers and facilitate their mobility to other jobs connected to the blue economy.
