Extracts from the read-out of the weekly meeting of the Juncker Commission by Marianne Thyssen, Member of the EC
On 4 October, Marianne Thyssen, Member of the EC in charge of Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Labour Mobility, gave a press conference on the results of the Youth Guarantee and the Youth Employment Initiative, at the European Parliament in Strasbourg. The Commission has adopted a proposal to revise the Europass Decision. Europass is a suite of tools and services which support the transparency of skills and qualifications across the European Union. With this revision, the Commission aims to simplify and modernise these tools for the digital age and to add a new feature using big data to map and anticipate labour market trends and skills needs. Europe's prosperity depends upon our most valuable asset – our people. In a fast-changing global economy, it is people's skills which will be a motor for our competitiveness and growth. Europass is one of Europe's most used and well-known skills resources. Since it was established in 2005, more than 60 million Europass CVs have been created and hundreds of thousands of learners across the EU receive Diploma and Certificate Supplements every year which help to make their qualifications more readable and easily comparable abroad; backed-up with advice and support services on the ground in Member States. The new Europass Framework will build upon this successful formula with easy to use tools to help people identify and communicate their skills and qualifications in all EU languages. These include an improved online tool for creating CVs and skills profiles, free self-assessment tools to help you evaluate your skills, tailored information on learning opportunities across Europe, and information and support to help you get your qualifications recognised as well as labour market intelligence about what skills are most in demand and where. The new Europass Framework will also link with other EU tools and services across labour and education and training systems, such as the EURES job mobility portal, allowing for an easier exchange of information and more joined-up services for end-users. National support centres will continue to offer individual advice and guidance to help people navigate the skills and qualifications landscape.

Education, Youth and Culture Council: joint press conference by Noel Dempsey, Irish Minister for Education and Science and President in office of the Council, and by Viviane Reding
Les ministres européens de l'Education ont adopté un rapport sur les progrès réalisés jusqu'à présent au niveau des objectifs-clés définis pour le secteur de l'éducation et de la formation dans le cadre de la stratégie de Lisbonne. Celle-ci donnait pour cible à l'Europe de devenir l'économie à base de connaissance la plus dynamique du monde d'ici 2010. Le rapport identifie trois principaux leviers d'action dans le secteur de l'éducation pour accomplir la mission convenue, à savoir faire des systèmes d'éducation et de formation en Europe une référence de qualité applicable à l'échelle mondiale d'ici 2010. Les ministres se sont également penchés sur l'Europass, une proposition de cadre européen unique assurant la transparence des qualifications et compétences. Le but de la proposition, dont l'entrée en vigueur est prévue pour le 1er janvier 2005, est de permettre aux citoyens de présenter leurs qualifications et compétences dans toute l'Europe au moyen de documents réunis dans un dossier coordonné et personnel. La présidence irlandaise a pour objectif d'arriver à un accord politique sur la proposition lors de la réunion de mai du Conseil. Au déjeuner, les ministres ont abordé quelques questions concernant l'année européenne de l'éducation par le sport, lancée à Dublin les 29 et 30 janvier derniers.
