The members of the partnership have agreed on specific commitments and indicators to help workers in the tourism sector acquire new skills in the coming years.

These could include digital, green and social skills, such as customer service training and language skills, all of which can improve employability in the sector.

One of the objectives of the partnership is to increase skills development and retraining activities by 40% for workers and 80% for the unemployed by 2025.
