Press conference by Androulla Vassiliou on the new Rethinking Education strategy

55 views

At a press conference on 20 November 2012 in Strasbourg, in the margins of the EP plenary session, Androulla Vassiliou, Member of the EC in charge of Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth, launched a new strategy called "Rethinking Education" to encourage EU Member States to take immediate action to ensure that young people develop the skills and competences needed by the labour market and to achieve their targets for growth and jobs. Rethinking Education calls for a fundamental shift in education, with more focus on "learning outcomes" - the knowledge, skills and competences that students acquire. Merely having spent time in education is no longer sufficient. In addition, basic literacy and numeracy still needs to be significantly improved, and entrepreneurial skills and a sense of initiative need to be developed or strengthened. The strategy also calls on Member States to strengthen links between education and employers, to bring enterprise into the classroom and to give young people a taste of employment through increased work-based learning.
