Leather Goods Integrated Action - Innovative Training for the Leather Goods sector across Europe
The LEIA project will introduce completely innovative learning methods, such as training materials based on augmented reality, in a traditional sector such as the leather goods industry.
The project envisages to design, develop and pilot a new profile and training opportunities through online and work-based learning. This training will be combined with mobility actions for trainers and learners in line with the actual needs of companies.
The project will boost the upskilling of the sector's workforce, promote the entrepreneurship of young designers and the development of a new generation of highly skilled leather goods manufacturers. To strengthen the manufacture of high quality leather goods across Europe, this new profile will focus on high-end products.
