Interactive Training Gap identifier |

The Interactive Training Gap identifier (ITGI) is designed to increase the awareness for the skills required by the food sector in the coming years and to identify any existing gap.

New scenarios and trends in various sectors are changing the skills and competences needed for the job market, as well as introducing new jobs and professions.


The Interactive Training Gap identifier is aimed to provide self-assessment tools  to avoid skill mismatch, and to support personal learning and career paths for present and future food professionals.


This tool is a useful resource for:


• Training Agencies/Universities/Training Designers and Training Facilitators, who focus on the food industry.

• HR Managers, Food Entrepreneurs, Business Associations, who need to keep updated skills and to plan/orient training investments in the best way.

• Entrants in the labour market, Professionals, individual employees who need to plan their careers and want to invest in their up-/re-skilling, according to clear specifications of skill requirements for desired job positions.


The ITGI comprises several sections: “in action” with the information on how to use the tool; “methodology” including the theoretical approach that supported the implementation of this tool, the “supporting tools” with some self-assessment questionnaires, and the “career maps” where you’ll find the professional career path in various food sectors, the corresponding skills and competences, the professions recognized by ESCO (www.esco.eu) and future trends in professions.
