EC Launches the Rethinking Education Strategy

The European Commission (EC) is launching a new strategy called Rethinking Education to encourage Member States to take immediate action to solve the skill mismatch and to achieve their targets for jobs. The new strategy highlights the growth potential of ICT in terms of job creation, as well as the benefits that the digital revolution brings to education. The EC calls on Member States to strengthen the provision of transversal skills that increase employability, such as digital skills, across all curricula from early stages of education up to higher education. Another priority for all Member States is to scale up the use of ICT-supported learning and to modernise the ICT infrastructure of schools. Read the Rethinking Education Strategy
