Key competences have become a feature of education policy in EU member states since the adoption of the first reference framework in 2006. They provide added value in the labour market, social cohesion, and active citizenship by offering flexibility, adaptability, satisfaction, and motivation.

People need the right set of skills and competences to sustain current standards of living, support high rates of employment, and foster social cohesion in the light of future society and the world of work.  This is especially important when it comes to the initial and continuous vocational education training and its connection to the career paths of workers or students.  It is essential that those individuals may claim (via an assessment) a certain level of proficiency in Key Competences which provide, as mentioned above, added value to the labour market and many more areas. The project will thus help students and employees open doors to new opportunities in the changing labour market.

This is what the project aims to achieve, along with addressing the digital transformation through developing digital readiness, resilience, and capacity. The project supports digital transformation by providing detailed tools for measuring and assessing employees´ and students´ key competences and skills necessary in the time of digital. Its outcomes will also allow adapting vocational training to the present and future needs of the labour market. As such, the project will facilitate the digitalization of curricula of education and training providers as part of their digital transformation on the EU level and within the networks of the individual projects partners.

The project addresses: workers; new workers; students; people of working age in different sectors (with a focus on the mobility ecosystem and economic sciences)
