Educational Pathway to Attract Youngsters for Textile Careers

The European Textile & Clothing (T&C) industry is a diversified, innovative and a creativity driven industrial sector in the project partners’ countries (Austria, Italy, Portugal, Spain and the United Kingdom).  In addition to traditional production of high quality fabrics and garments, the industry has increasingly developed new applications for textile fibres and technical products in many different sectors (e.g. aerospace, medicine, construction, architecture, automotive, transport and personal protection applications).

EDU4TEX will promote the careers available in this sector, in order to attract high qualified new staff and to encourage youngsters to embrace future careers in the field of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) by offering Educational Resources and Framework as “Educational Pathway” and supporting “Tutorials and Professional Kits”, inter alia.
