This seminar, organised in cooperation with the Maltese Presidency of the Council of the EU, will focus on addressing and preventing low skills, a driving force of the core skills strategies in the EU. It will serve as a platform for policy-makers, social partners and other VET and labour market stakeholders to discuss factors which impact on the average skills level of workers, such as early leaving from E&T, long-term unemployment, ageing, skills mismatch, socioeconomic background, migrant status and gender. Discussions will also focus on how to encourage the development of systems to address the issue of low skills, a key objective of the Recommendation ‘Upskilling Pathways: New Opportunities for Adults’.
Participants' profile: Brussels-based stakeholders from the Permanent Representations of Member States to the EU, European Commission, the European Parliament, European business and sector associations, trade union and employee organisations.
