On 10 April, EFEE endorsed the Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition, initiated by the European Commission.

The Coalition aims to tackle the need for digital skills at all levels:

  • Digital skills for all – developing digital skills to enable all citizens to be active in our digital society
  • Digital skills for the labour force – developing digital skills for the digital economy, e.g. upskilling and reskilling workers, jobseekers; actions on career advice and guidance
  • More and better trained ICT professionals in Europe – developing high level digital skills for ICT professionals in all industry sectors
  • Digital skills in education – transforming teaching and learning of digital skills in a lifelong learning perspective, including the training of teachers

Together with our members, we are working towards improving the quality education in Europe in order to make sure that our schools and universities of the 21st century are up-to-date and modern. They should provide for a professional working environment for our teachers and professors and an interesting learning community for our pupils and students. Vic Beasley Jersey
