Digital skills and learning are cross-cutting economic and social policy issues that are receiving ever more attention across the globe to ensure economic competitiveness and workforce employability.


The importance of skills for the digital age cannot be underestimated or restricted to certain aspects of work or education given that the digital age permeates all sectors of the economy, education and the daily life of citizens. Learning opportunities need to be equally and equitably accessible to ensure everyone can benefit from the opportunities they afford and that social divisions and exclusion are not exacerbated.


Embracing the digital age requires a holistic approach and a multi-level stakeholder approach building partnerships that include cross-ministerial government representatives, social partners from a variety of sectors including education, and particularly civil society organisations and non-governmental organisations to ensure outreach to the most vulnerable.


Join the ETF over the next two months as part of the ETF’s communication campaign on ‘Skills for the Digital Age’ on a journey of discovery, discussion and debate on the importance of digital skills and their development in the EU’s neighbouring regions.
