The sectoral tourism skills information and monitoring system developed by PANTOUR has been launched. The SSIM system includes different research and assessment methods that can be used flexibly or complement existing methods to assess skills (gaps) and future needs. The Sectoral Skills Intelligence Monitor focuses on three skill areas in five tourism sub-sectors: digital, green and social skills. An important advantage of the SSIM system is that it is flexible and can be used in multiple ways and at multiple levels: local, regional, national or international, adding value to existing skills measurement systems. Its aim is to provide an innovative and comparable common approach to assessing and identifying changing skills needs along the tourism value chain and to ensure that education and training systems respond to changing labour market needs.
