Education is the way forward! That is why the Swedish Textile Service Association is part of the ERASMUS + project E-Washboard, which offers digital training to staff in the laundry and textile industry. 

Digital training platform for the textile service industry

A European digital training platform for the textile service industry. It has been developed through the three-year project, which is part-financed by the EU via ERASMUS +.

By constantly developing and improving authorized professional laundry and textile services, we can work together for a society based on sustainability and circular economy. One way there, which we are proud to have participated in, together with our European laundry colleagues, is the E-Washboard project funded by ERASMUS +.


Increased demands on education in the future
The Swedish textile service industry sees diversity as a strength and employees as its main asset. In the future, the demands on education will increase, at the same time as several work steps are excellent as entry-level jobs in the regular labor market. The project has taken this into account in the development of e-learning through modules, e-lessons and explanatory videos on a digital learning platform.


Easily accessible training methods
Between 2018–2021, industry organizations for laundry and textile services from Belgium, the Czech Republic, Germany, Sweden and our European partner organization ETSA collaborated with the HeurekaNet Institute, which specializes in vocational and adult education. The aim was to find innovative and effective activities for social inclusion, open education and easily accessible educational methods adapted to our digital reality.
