Opinion of EESC on Youth employment, technical skills and mobility

This EESC believes in an open and dynamic labour market and praises an active labour market policy which motivates jobseekers and people in employment to undertake lifelong learning and helps to boost vocational and geographical mobility.

Higher priority should be given to twin-track training in the education system.

Nobody really knows what tomorrow's jobs will look like, but training should be based on labour market needs and solutions to actual problems.

There should be greater recognition of skills acquired outside the training systems.

Curriculums should focus more on general and innovative competences.
