Focus on skills
As part of our regular newsletter provision, we will be offering you periodically an overview of Cedefop’s work in a particular area. This first edition focuses on skills. It aims at highlighting Cedefop outputs that can spearhead revision or updating of national and local policies or implementation of new ones.
Commissioner Thyssen’s visit to Cedefop on 22 April reinforced our agency’s role in supporting the new Skills agenda implementation. Effective communication with our stakeholders is essential in sharing information and knowledge that could have a positive impact on developments in VET, qualifications, and skill needs and anticipation.
The European skills and jobs survey insights and outcomes from Cedefop events can serve in rethinking education and training programmes, so that learning meets the needs of the individual and the economy better. Skills are high on the European political agenda because the number of citizens lacking basic skills to support their lives is unacceptably high. Cedefop will continue working assiduously to reduce skill mismatch and promote employability and competitiveness.
I hope you enjoy the newsletter.
