Abstract

The digital transformation that the world is facing
has a strong impact in the professional occupations and job
profiles in the factories of the future context, requiring the need
of upskilling and re-qualification of the workforce. Taking this
into account, an Industrial Collaborative Educational Design
(ICoED) is presented comprising three stages and eight steps, and considering a democratic and collaborative participation of the different stakeholders, namely the managers, educators and learners, each one providing its own perspective on the design of the training programme. In this co-design process, the analysis of the skills’ gap is a crucial task to prepare the initial stage of the process, particularly identifying the needs in terms of soft and hard skills. The proposed ICoED process was applied to solve an upskilling problem of an industrial metal stamping company, with the participants performing three workshops to execute the eight steps, reaching a training programme with five modules, each one settled with proper activities, resources and infrastructures.
