Lifelong learning

This review will seek to determine which skills and competences young people need to acquire to succeed in the job market and in life, with a particular focus on entrepreneurship education.

The review was announced in the Commission’s New Skills Agenda for Europe adopted in June 2016. The goal is to develop a shared understanding of key competences needed and to further foster their introduction in education and training curricula. The revision will also provide support for better developing and assessing these skills.

The public consultation will run until 19 May 2017.
