Education in the Industry 5.0 context emphasizes a combination of technical and soft skills, multidisciplinary learning, and lifelong learning to empower individuals to leverage advanced technologies and drive innovation in the evolving industrial landscape. One of the critical challenges in education for professionals in Industry 5.0 is the rapid pace of technological advancements and the associated skill gap. Moreover, considering the interdisciplinary nature of Industry 5.0, professionals need to possess a combination of technical, business, and interpersonal skills to succeed in this context. Addressing these challenges requires a collaborative effort between educational institutions and industry stakeholders, involving the development of flexible and responsive educational programs. In this work, we present the Self-Made Programme, a novel blended training program designed to equip professionals with the necessary skills and knowledge to thrive in the dynamic landscape of Industry 5.0. The pedagogical component of this program consists of four different learning paths, offered by a consortium from five different European hubs. On the one hand, the program's focus lies in cultivating proficiency in Digitalization & Human-Centric Manufacturing, enabling professionals to navigate the convergence of physical and digital systems. On the other hand, the program equips professionals with essential skills in Data-driven Decision Making, enabling them to leverage vast amounts of data for strategic and operational insights. By combining theoretical foundations with practical applications, this training program empowers professionals to embrace the potential of Industry 5.0.
