The ALBATTS Skills Cards describe a number of occupational profiles - and corresponding competencies - within the scope of battery manufacturing, e-mobility and stationary battery storage.
Companies can use the Skills Cards to identify the needed competencies to 1) readjust/improve employee’s selection and recruitment; 2) train employees according to the latest sectoral needs; 3) set up their businesses within the battery sector.
Training providers, such as VET providers or universities, will find them useful to 1) create training opportunities; 2) improve existing curricula or training programmes.
National agencies can use the Skills Cards to readjust national education plans, whereas general public may use them to know more about the jobs in the batteries sector.

You can send us your feedback on 5 different categories of competencies, as well as on overall level regarding specific Skills Cards. We collect your contributions and update the Skills Cards every two months from mid-February 2023.
Please note the following, regarding the level of maturity in relation to the skills in the Skills Cards:
• Awareness: Understands the background of the knowledge, competence/skill, and its implications to be able to understand how it is applied in the environment.
• Practitioner: Strong understanding of the knowledge, experience in the competence/skill. Able to apply knowledge, the experience of the competence/skill and share with others including tools and techniques, define and use the most appropriate for the solution.
• Expert: Knowledge or competence/skill ability to develop and apply procedures and activities as an individual and/or provide his qualified opinion to a team. Recognised specialist and advisor in the generation of solutions and ideas, including methods, tools, techniques, guiding or leading others in best practice use of the specific knowledge and skill.
