- European Year of Skills will provide a new momentum to reach the EU 2030 social targets of at least 60% of adults in training every year, and at least 78% in employment.
- The initiative will also help achieve the 2030 Digital Compass targets of at least 80% of adults with basic digital skills and 20 million employed ICT specialists in the EU.
- Currently, more than three quarters of companies in the EU say they have difficulties finding workers with the necessary skills, while only 37% of adults undertake training on a regular basis.
- The Digital Economy and Society Index shows that 4 out of 10 adults and every third person who works in Europe lack basic digital skills.
- Women are under-represented in tech-related professions and studies, with only 1 in 5 ICT specialists and 1 in 3 science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) graduates being women.
- How will European Year of Skills achieve its aims?
– events and awareness-raising campaigns to support mutual learning of partners in up- and reskilling;
– special focus will be given to activate more people for the labour market, in particular women and young people, especially those not in education, employment or training.
- For European Year of Skills, the EU will build on its ongoing initiatives and programmes, with significant levels of funding and technical support.
- European Year of Skills will be a cross-cutting theme across EU programmes for which individuals and organisations will be eligible to apply.
