POSTPONED: Infosession on the Updated Skills Agenda
This event was also hit by the covid-19 virus. In order to guarantee the health of both our speakers and our audience, we are forced to postpone this event.
We will look for a new date in May as soon as possible.
The Skills Agenda for Europe needs an update. A first updated draft of this agenda will be presented on March 18th. And because up- and reskilling, and the reduction of the skills gap are hot topics for all European regions, we want to inform regional offices about this updated agenda. We will do so on Friday 3 April from 10h to 12h30.
We will listen to the the presentation of the new agenda with speakers from DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion (DG EMPL) and DG Education, Youth, Sport and Culture (DG EAC) (European Commission).
This is a save-the-date. The final programme and location will of course follow as soon as possible. Register below to make sure you have a spot.
About the Skills Agenda for Europe
In June 2016, the European Commission presented this skills agenda. It consisted of ten actions to support the EU in tackling skills challenges.
Four years later, March 2020, the European and international context has changed dramatically: digitisation, more flexible work patterns and globalisation call for a renewed agenda. That update is now coming. The focus will be even more on (developing) workers' skills, tackling skills mismatches and modernising vocational training (VET). In addition, a number of recommendations are being developed for VET.
