Open Staff Week 2018 // 5 – 9 November – REGISTRATIONS
The European Commission is promoting various initiatives, all centered around a common goal: to increase digital skills and competences in the workforce. These initiatives cover several areas such as the enhancement and /or development of digital platforms for the recognition and validation of skills.
A new Skills Agenda for Europe, presenting a number of actions and initiatives with the ambition to tackle the digital skills’ deficit in Europe.
The Agenda has at ultimate goal to “trigger a change of mindsets in both individuals and organizations”. It is focused on three key work strands:
- Improving the quality and relevance of skills formation
- Making skills and qualifications more visible and comparable
- Improving skills intelligence and information for better career choices
