The European Commission has announced that in the coming months it will take ten initiatives to implement the New Skills Agenda for Europe.
As part of this commitment, the Commission has recently published Social Agenda n°45. The initiative focuses in particular on the skills guarantee (a way to enhance literacy, numeracy and digital skills for adult workers) and how the European Qualifications Framework is being improved.
The initiative clarifies the recognition of education systems, qualifications and skills across Europe, and ensures better skills evaluations for third-country nationals.
As a follow-up to the previous issue on refugees, Social Agenda n°45 also presents in detail the Action Plan on the Integration of Third Country Nationals which the Commission adopted on 7 June.
