The European Commission has launched a public consultation to review the 2006 Recommendation on Key Competences for Lifelong Learning. This review was announced in June 2016 as part of the European Commission’s New Skills Agenda for Europe. It aims to determine the key competences young people need to acquire to thrive in tomorrow’s labour market and in their daily lives. A shared understanding of these skills and competences will encourage their introduction in education and training. The Key Competences Framework identifies eight key competences. Digital competence, mathematical competence and basic competences in science and technology are among them.
The consultation is open until 19 May 2017. All citizens and organisations are invited to submit their views.
