The European Commission has launched initiatives to find out what needs to be done to promote digital skills early on and at all stages of education and training. And what is needed in terms of investment and policy reforms.
In order to achieve this the Commission is looking to gather feedback from civil society and set out what needs to be done to:

  • Ensure everyone has access to digital education;
  • Promote digital skills early on and at all stages of education and training.

European Commission Initiatives to Promote Digital Skills

The first Call for Evidence (‘Digital education – enabling factors for success’) aims to support Member States in the digital transformation of their education and training systems by outlining the key enabling factors for an effective and inclusive digital education ecosystem. The initiative covers all levels of education and training, and will contribute to the modernisation of education and training system, enhancing territorial cohesion, social inclusion and equity, while contributing to driving economic growth, job creation and competitiveness.

The second Call for Evidence (‘Digital skills – improving their provision’) aims to promote a quality, inclusive, coherent and coordinated approach to the
provision of digital skills across all levels of education and training, and to contribute to the achievement of the EU digital skills targets outlined by the Digital Decade: 80% of adults with at least basic digital skills and 20 million ICT specialists employed in the EU by 2030.

The European Commission will use evidence gathered through these Calls for two Proposals for Council recommendation in the area of digital skills and education, planned for the first quarter of 2023.

The feedback is now open, so have your say! The deadline to leave your feedback is 16 September 2022 (midnight Brussels time).
