Theme 4: Promoting social inclusion and gender equality in education and training, including the integration of migrants


1. Description

The strategic framework for European cooperation in education and training (ET 2020) (Council of the European Union, 2009b) sets promoting equity, social cohesion and active citizenship as a strategic priority for Member States until 2020.  Education and training systems should aim to ensure that all learners — including those from disadvantaged backgrounds, those with special needs and migrants — complete their education, through, where appropriate, second-chance education and more personalised learning. By doing this, education and training systems contribute to reducing social inequalities and enable citizens to realise their full potential (Council of the European Union, 2011b).
