The new Commission has set a high ambition for the EU: to move to a green and digital economy. Reinforced investment in skills and learning throughout life for all is essential to make this transition successful. As all adults will need to upskill and reskill, vocational education and training (VET) will play a pivotal role in the sustainable growth strategy. Cedefop is ready to help develop and realise the future skills and VET agenda as its remit to work on VET, skills and qualifications, set out in its recast Regulation (in force since 2019). The Regulation ensures Cedefop’s research, analyses and support to countries bridge VET and the labour market.
