Improving lifelong learning and employability

Following the first principle of the European Pillar of Social Rights on the right to education, training and lifelong learning, the European Commission has presented proposals for Council Recommendations on individual learning accounts and on micro-credentials, as announced in the Skills Agenda and in the European Education Area Communication of 2020. 

The skill set opens up opportunities to individuals, promotes inclusion and social advancement and provides the economy with the skilled labour force needed to grow and innovate. 

Two new proposals were adopted on individual learning accounts and on micro-credentials which will help tackle these challenges by opening up more opportunities for people to find learning offers, and employment opportunities.
