ASAP: Synthesis Report

Printed Material (Handbook)

This report looks at the training and certification needs of the book publishing sector in the countries participating in the project (Greece, Italy, Spain and the UK) and in two additional countries (France and Germany). It is based on an analysis and comparison of the national reports from the four participating countries, which in turn rely on the information collected through the extensive survey conducted among hundreds of stakeholders using the questionnaire previously elaborated within the project (Needs Assessment Survey Template).

It provides an overview of the changes the publishing sector is undergoing due to the digital transition, of the publishing occupational standards in the countries analysed and of new trends and best practices in education and training for the publishing sector, and lays the ground to linking the skills needs and competences gaps with learning outcomes – a task that shall be taken further at a subsequent stage of the project.
