TYA - the Vocational Training and Working Environment Council (Transport
Trades) - is a non-profit-making association established by the labour

The nature of the activities is rather broad however some sectors of the
transport branch are not covered. Thus, shipping as well as railroad and air
transports are excluded due to the dividing lines between different labour
TYA is owned by eight employers´ associations and five white and blue-collar

all employers covered by the relevant agreements within the trades. The fee

employees embraced by the agreements is about 100 000. The annual turnover
of TYA is approximately 80 millions SEK (» 9 million EUR) and the number of
staff amounts to 30 regularly employed.
We focus on several various areas
- to improve the status of the transport industry
- to develop and produce training tools of all kinds, e.g. CBT
products, distance learning tools, books and various instruction manuals
- to carry out vocational training and working environment education.
Annually, we arrange some 60 courses in different subjects relevant for
the transport trades
- to create and maintain a dialogue with national and regional
authorities as well as other stake holders to consider the views held by
- to follow, report on and take action to improve the working
- to engage in recruitment activities making skilled staff seek job
opportunities in the transport sector.
As regards vocational training, we work together with a great number of
independent instructors. Our material is widely spread within the transport
branch in Sweden but is also offered to parties that have a genuine interest
in our findings.
