The Council adopted a resolution on socio-economic development and inclusiveness in the EU through education. The text focuses on measures to ensure targeted investment in education and on how best to address skills gaps in order to restore jobs and promote sustainable economic growth in Europe. At the same time, it highlights the equally important role of education in promoting citizenship and social inclusion.
Ministers discussed how to increase synergies between education, the labour market and society with a view to raising awareness and underlining the urgency of the many issues relating to skills development.
Minister Jet Bussemaker said: “The development and use of a right balanced set of skills are crucial to position pupils, students, teachers and adults in a changing and increasingly global labour market”.
