76 views

On 8 October 2013, Androulla Vassiliou, Member of the EC in charge of Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth, held a joint press conference with Angel Gurría, Secretary General of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), to present the Survey of Adult Skills, also known as the Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC), published by the OECD and the EC. The survey assesses the literacy, numeracy and problem-solving ICT skills of adults aged 16-65 in 17 EU Member States - Belgium (Flanders), Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Cyprus, The Netherlands, Austria, Poland, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom (England/Northern Ireland), as well as in Australia, Canada, Japan, Republic of Korea, Norway and the United States. According to the Survey, one in five adults in Europe have low literacy and numeracy skills, and even a university degree in the same subject is no guarantee of the same level of skills in different countries These findings underline the need to target investment at improving education and training to increase skills and employability in European countries.
