Factsheet Count on Skills

Tel mee met Taal (Count on Skills) is a government programme that steps up efforts to combat and prevent poor language, maths and digital skills. Thanks to the action programme, tens of thousands of adults are getting better at reading, writing, doing maths and using the computer, and the programme is also supporting one million school-going children with reading and language activities.

A joint initiative of three Dutch ministries (Education, Culture and Science; Social Affairs and Employment; Public Health, Welfare and Sport), alongside various national and other partners, the action programme is set to run until the end of 2018.
