Marketing Text Survey of employers in the area of production and processing of plastics and rubber is only the first step to fulfilment of these aims. Whole process will continue with work of international workgroups and realisation of workshops in Slovak Republic. Managers for human resources, (representatives from the industry), also representatives from educational sector will be invited to these workshops.
Slovak plastics cluster (7 members) coordinates international project Transfer of Qualifications and Learning Standards in Plastics Sector StandPlast VET. The aim of this project is creation of a List of job titles and a List of adequate qualifications in sector 22 – Production of plastic products and rubber. Another important aim is description of key competences (knowledge, skills and attitudes) and simultaneous creation of the framework of educational programmes to these key competences.
During the year 2014 the “GUIDE OF JOB TITLES, QUAFILICATIONS AND VOCATIONAL EDUCATION IN THE PLASTIC SECTOR” will be created in cooperation by workshop participants. This guide will help employers to clearly define professional job titles in own organisations (standards), to draw information for internal (inside the firm) professional education, to draw demands/requirements for external professional education (schools and educational institutions). “The Guide” will respect European Qualification Framework (EQF). Information in the Guide will enable preparation of professionally qualified workforce in area of plastics and rubber to meet the standards in EU countries.
Target group employers in plastic industry (C22)
Standardised definition of job titles and relevant competences would contribute to the increase of quality:
- formal education at secondary and tertiary level
- informal education delivered via both external and internal providers
- workplace environment (increased job satisfaction)
- human resources (greater stability and retention, lower attrition rates, better adaptability)
- placement of job-seekers to relevant positions by HR personnel
Up to 56 % of plastics firms have some foreign capital investors and share-holders and 8 % of plastics firms are international/global. Therefore, correct understanding of job titles and their competences are conditions required for intra-company mobility as well as within industry, as well as for education specific to plastics industry and cluster.
