Upskilling Pathways - Public consultation launched

The European Commission has launched a public consultation on Upskilling Pathways, open until 17 March 2022.

European Commission - 07/01/2022

Feedback is invited on the implementation of the 2016 Council Recommendation on Upskilling Pathways: New opportunities for Adults – an EU initiative to help low-skilled adults develop new skills through learning opportunities.

The Recommendation invites Member States to ensure that adults with low levels of skills and qualifications have access to "upskilling pathways" to develop their skills (including basic skills i.e. numeracy, literacy and digital skills), and potentially to progress towards a qualification. These pathways should offer people support through:

  • skills assessment
  • tailor-made learning offer
  • skills validation and recognition

This should be accompanied by outreach, guidance and education staff training.

Your views will feed into an evaluation of the implementation of the Recommendation and progress made towards raising low-qualified adults’ literacy, numeracy and digital skills, and help to draw implications for the future.

Fill in the survey

  • How are Upskilling Pathways implemented in the Member States?
  • Is there enough support to empower people to access learning opportunities to gain literacy, numeracy and basic digital skills or/and to progress towards further qualifications?
  • Do you have any suggestions for the future?

We invite you to share the information about this public consultation widely among your stakeholders. Respondents can fill in the survey in the name of their organisation or in a private capacity. Organisations are also invited to attach a position paper, if they wish so.
