Rethinking education: investing in skills for better socio-economic outcomes
This Communication from the European Commission proposes actions at national level and concrete initiatives at EU level to support the modernisation of education and training systems for growth and jobs. These include delivering the right skills for employment and business creation, increasing the efficiency and inclusion of education and training institutions, and working collaboratively with stakeholders. The Communication is accompanied by the first edition of the Education & Training Monitor to provide a picture of current skills supply and progress towards the Europe 2020 headline targets, and six other Staff Working Documents showcasing policy evidence and good practice.
